scientific name

Gossypium arboreum L.
status

 

Gossypium arboreum Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 693. 1753.

"Habitat in Indiae arenosis." RCN: 5075.

Lectotype (Fawcett & Rendle, Fl. Jamaica 5: 148. 1926): Herb. Linn. No. 874.3 ( LINN)  .

Generitype of Gossypium Linnaeus. 

Current name: Gossypium arboreum L.  ( Malvaceae  ).

Note: Watt (Wild Cult. Cotton Pl. World: 84, pl. 7. 1907) discussed some of the elements involved and, although he concluded that Plukenet’s description and plate “… must be accepted as manifesting the type of the species botanically", he also referred (pl. 7) to the LINN specimen as “type”. Watt therefore failed to make an effective type choice.
