status

 

Capparis baducca Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 504. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in India." RCN: 3822.

Lectotype (Jacobs in Blumea 12: 435. 1965): [icon] “Badukka” in Rheede, Hort. Malab. 6: 105, t. 57. 1686.

Current name: Capparis baducca L.  ( Capparaceae  ).

Note: As discussed by Prado (in Taxon 42: 655-660. 1993), uncertainty about the typification of this name (which included both New and Old World elements) has caused some difficulty. In 1965, Jacobs treated the cited Rheede plate (from India) as the type but Prado rejected this choice, based on conflict with Linnaeus’ diagnosis, in favour of a Clifford collection (BM) of the New World species otherwise known as C. frondosa Jacq. However  , as discussed by Rankin & Greuter (in Willdenowia 34: 261. 2004), there are no grounds for rejecting Jacobs’ typification (as a cited illustration, Rheede’s plate is part of the protologue), and C. baducca  is the correct, if now ambiguous, name for the Indian species. Rankin & Greuter suggest that it may be desirable for it now to be proposed for rejection, allowing C. rheedei  DC. to replace it.
