scientific name

Antennaria plantaginifolia (L.) Hook.
status

 

Gnaphalium plantaginifolium Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 850. 1753.

"Habitat in Virginia." RCN: 6185.

Replaced synonym of: Gnaphalium plantagineum L. (1767)  , nom. illeg.

Lectotype (Robinson in Rhodora 3: 13. 1901): Kalm, Herb. Linn. No. 989.68 ( LINN)  .

Current name: Antennaria plantaginifolia (L.) Hook.  ( Asteraceae  ).

Note: See discussion by Reveal (in Taxon 40: 658-659. 1991), who proposed the name for conservation with Kalm, Herb. Linn. No. 989.68 ( LINN) as a conserved type. He interpreted Britton (in J. Bot. 36: 266. 1898) as being first to typify the name based on Clayton 287 (BM), a specimen of Antennaria solitaria Rydb. However, Robinson  (in Rhodora 3: 11-13. 1901) argued that the Clayton material could not have been the basis for the name as it is staminate, and Linnaeus stated that he had seen only the pistillate form. Robinson concluded that the two (Kalm) specimens mounted on sheet 989.68 (LINN), which are pistillate, "must be regarded as the types for the name", although Greene (in Pittonia 4: 280-283. 1901) dismissed material in LINN as ever having any relevance to Linnaean names. Fernald (in Rhodora 47: 240, pl. 957. 1945) interpreted the name via the Plukenet element, rejecting that of Gronovius (and of Clayton). The Committee for Spermatophyta (in Taxon 43: 271. 1994) could not decide which of these competing type choices was valid, and so did not recommend conservation. The Committee recommended that, in the meantime, the name is to be used in its current sense. In the light of this, Robinson’s typification is accepted here.
