scientific name

Aureolaria flava (L.) Farw.
status

 

Gerardia flava Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 610. 1753.

"Habitat in Virginia, Canada." RCN: 4416.

Lectotype (Pennell in Bull. Torrey Bot. Club 40: 409. 1913): Kalm, Herb. Linn. No. 764.6 ( LINN)  .

Current name: Aureolaria flava (L.) Farw.  ( Scrophulariaceae  ).

Note: Blake (in Rhodora 20: 67. 1918) chose Clayton 91 (BM) as lectotype, a specimen of Aureolaria virginica (L.) Pennell  , into the synonymy of which this name would therefore fall. However, usage follows Pennell (in Rhodora 20: 133. 1918), who argued that the Kalm specimen (764.6 LINN) fitted Linnaeus’ diagnosis better and should therefore be the type. It is identifiable as A. flava  . Reveal (in Taxon 41: 143. 1992) therefore proposed the conservation of the name with the Kalm sheet as conserved type. However, the Committee for Spermatophyta (in Taxon 43: 274. 1994) did not recommend acceptance, arguing that it was unnecessary as Pennell (1913), despite his unclear wording, had typified the name first.
