scientific name

Thymbra capitata (L.) Cav.
status

 

Thymus cephalotos Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 592. 1753.

"Habitat in Hispania, Lusitania." RCN: 4304.

Type not designated.

Original material: [icon] in Barrelier, Pl. Galliam: 28, t. 788. 1714; [icon] in Boccone, Mus. Piante Rar. Sicilia: 50, t. 43. 1697.

Current name: Thymbra capitata (L.) Cav.  ( Lamiaceae  ).

Note: The application of this name is uncertain. Morales (in Ruizia 3: 179. 1986) designated Herb. Linn. 247.5 ( S) as lectotype. However, this sheet lacks any Linnaean annotations and, as such, is not original material for the name and not eligible for designation as lectotype. Morales identified this specimen as Thymbra capitata (L.) Cav.  and therefore placed Thymus cephalotos  in its synonymy. Spanish authors have in the past used Thymus cephalotos  in the sense of T. moroderi Pau  ex Martínez (probably based on the identity of the Barrelier and Boccone synonyms) but Portuguese authors have also used the Linnaean name in the sense of what has recently been called Thymus  lotocephalos G. López & Morales (1984).
