Carex leporina L.
status

 

Carex leporina Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 973. 1753.

"Habitat in Europae pratis udis." RCN: 7063.

Lectotype (Egorova, Sedges Russia: 545. 1999): [icon] " Gr. Cyp. palustre  majus spica divisa " in Morison, Pl. Hist. Univ. 3: 244, s. 8, t. 12, f. 29. 1699.

Current name: Carex leporina L.  ( Cyperaceae  ).

Note: Turland (in Taxon 46: 341. 1997) proposed the rejection of C. leporina  against C. lachenalii Schkuhr  but this was not recommended by the Committee for Spermatophyta (in Taxon 48: 367. 1999) because of uncertainty over its typification. The type proposed by Nelmes (in Rep. Bot. Soc. Exch. Club Brit. Isles 13: 337. 1948), 1100.19 (LINN), is identifiable as C. lachenalii  but Egorova (Sedges Russia: 543. 1999) rejected this type choice on the grounds of conflict with the protologue, and typified the name instead using the cited Morison plate, identifiable with what has been called C. ovalis Good. The Committee  for Spermatophyta (in Taxon 54: 1095. 2005) subsequently reconsidered the proposal and, accepting Egorova’s typification, found that rejection as proposed was unnecessary. Carex leporina  is therefore the correct name for what has been known as C. ovalis  .
