6. Andromeda cassinefolia Vent., Descr. Pl. Nouv. : tab. 60. 1801.

Lectotypus (designated here): [ UNITED STATES]: Hort. Cels , Ventenat s.n. ( G [ G00341453 ]!).

= Zenobia pulverulenta (W. Bartram ex Willd.) Pollard

Notes. – In 1801, Ventenat validated in Descriptions the name Andromeda cassinefolia based on a specimen from material cultivated in Cels’s garden [G00341453] designated here as the lectotype. In the second volume of Jardin de Malmaison (under tab. 79 published in 1804), Ventenat treated this taxon under the name A. cassinefolia var. nuda , a nom. nud. This taxon was illustrated by Redouté based on a second collection [G00408075] that is still extant in Ventenat’s herbarium. We consider the second collection as an element of original material of A. cassinefolia because Ventenat in 1801 already discussed the variability of his new taxon and the second collection cited in 1804 was very likely already in his possession in 1801.
