scientific name

Entada gigas (L.) Fawc. & Rendle
status

 

Mimosa gigas Linnaeus  , Flora Jamaicensis: 22. 1759.

"Habitat [in Jamaica.]"

Neotype (Panigrahi in Taxon 34: 714. 1985): Herb. Linn. No. 1228.11 ( LINN)  .

Current name: Entada gigas (L.) Fawc. & Rendle  ( Fabaceae  : Mimosoideae  ).

Note: Various authors (e.g. Johnston in Sargentia 8: 136. 1949; Brenan in Hubbard & Milne-Redhead, Fl. Trop. E. Africa, Leguminosae 1: 11. 1959) have treated either untraced Patrick Browne material, or his published description (Civ. Nat. Hist. Jamaica: 362. 1758), as the type. However, Panigrahi (1985) treated what is clearly 1228.11 (LINN), material cultivated in the Botanic Garden in Uppsala, as the type. As M. gigas  is validated solely by reference to Browne’s work, the name should be typified from the context of that publication (Art. 7.7). However, as no relevant Browne material has been traced, and there is no illustration in his book, Panigrahi’s choice is accepted as a neotypification (Art. 9.8).
