status

 

Achyranthes aspera Linnaeus var. indica Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 204. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

RCN: 1654.

Type not designated.

Original material: Herb. Linn. No. 101.1 ( S)  ; Herb. Linn. No. 287.1 ( LINN)  ; [icon] in Plukenet, Phytographia: t. 10, f. 4. 1691; Almag. Bot.: 26. 1696; [icon] in Burman, Thes. Zeylan.: 16, t. 5, f. 3. 1737.

Current name: Achyranthes indica (L.) Mill.  ( Amaranthaceae  ).

Note: Although some authors (e.g. Fawcett & Rendle, Fl. Jamaica 3: 136. 1914; Townsend in Polhill, Fl. Trop. E. Africa, Amaranthaceae  : 102. 1985) treat the type as from the Hermann herbarium (BM), and therefore homotypic with var. aspera L.  , var. indica  has as the source of its diagnosis a Burman description and figure. In addition, although some authors treat A. indica (L.) Mill.  as synonymous with A. aspera  , others do not.
