scientific name

Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench
status

 

Holcus bicolor Linnaeus  , Mantissa Plantarum Altera: 301. 1771.

"Habitat in Persia. D. Lerche. H. U." RCN: 7565.

Lectotype (Davidse in Cafferty & al. in Taxon 49: 251. 2000): Herb. Clifford: 468, Holcus  1 (BM-000647533)  .

Current name: Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench  ( Poaceae  ).

Note: See exhaustive review by Snowden (Cult. Races Sorghum  : 7, 106. 1936), who stated that a specimen in LINN (perhaps 1212.6?) "may be the type". This is ineffective. Poilecot (in Boissiera 56: 509. 1999) indicated material in LINN as the type of S. bicolor (L.) Moench  , and a Clifford collection as the lectotype of H. bicolor L. Davidse & Turland  (in Taxon 50: 577. 2001) have, however, accepted Poilecot as having effectively typified the name using the Clifford sheet. This, however, was ineffective, and Davidse’s 2000 choice is accepted as typifying the name.
