scientific name

Millettia pinnata (L.) Panigrahi
status

 

Robinia mitis Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum, ed. 2, 2: 1044. 1763, nom. illeg.

"Habitat in India." RCN: 5452.

Replaced synonym: Cytisus pinnatus L. (1753)  .

Lectotype (Smith, Fl. Vitiensis Nova 3: 170. 1985): [icon] " Phaseolo affinis Arbor Indica Coral dicta polyphyllos non spinosa, foliis mollibus subhirsutis " in Plukenet, Phytographia: t. 104, f. 3. 1691; Almag. Bot.: 293. 1696.

Current name: Millettia pinnata (L.) Panigrahi  ( Fabaceae  : Faboideae  ).

Note: Merrill (in Philipp. J. Sci., C, 5: 101. 1910) took up this name in place of Cytisus pinnatus L. (1753)  and interpreted R. mitis  via Herb. Linn. No. 913.3 ( LINN). Robinia mitis  is, however, an illegitimate renaming of C. pinnatus  and consequently the two names are homotypic. Although annotated with “mitis” by Linnaeus, sheet 913.3 (LINN) is not original material for C. pinnatus  . Smith appears to have been the first to make a formal choice of type for C. pinnatus  (and hence R. mitis  ).
