scientific name

Nemophila aphylla (L.) Brummitt
status

 

Galax aphylla Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 200. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Virginia." RCN: 1622.

Neotype (Reveal in Jarvis & al., Regnum Veg. 127: 48. 1993): U.S.A. North Carolina, Chatham Co., about 1 mile west of Bynum, alluvial woods along How River near U.S. Highway 15-501, 25 Apr 1960, Ahles & Radford 53245 (BM).

Generitype of Galax Linnaeus  , nom. rej.

Current name: Nemophila aphylla (L.) Brummitt  ( Hydrophyllaceae  ).

Note: Galax Linnaeus  , nom. rej. in favour of Galax Sims. Reveal  (in Taxon 41: 592. 1992) argued that Clayton 4 (P-JU), a specimen of Galax urceolata (Poir.) Brummitt  ( Diapensiaceae  ), must be the lectotype and therefore proposed the conservation of the name with a conserved type. The Committee for Spermatophyta (in Taxon 43: 276. 1994) ruled that Clayton 4 could not be the type of G. aphylla  because it conflicted with Linnaeus’ generic description (among other things), and that conservation was unnecessary. The Committee ruled that the proposed conserved type was to be treated as a neotype. Reveal (1993) explicitly treated it in this way, and his typification therefore dates from 1993.
