scientific name

Cactus parasiticus Linnaeus
status

 

Cactus parasiticus Linnaeus  , Systema Naturae, ed. 10, 2: 1054. 1759.

["Habitat in America."] Sp. Pl., ed. 2, 1: 668 (1762). RCN: 3581.

Type not designated.

Original material: Browne, Herb. Linn. No. 633.3 ( LINN)  ; [icon] in Plumier in Burman, Pl. Amer.: 190, t. 197, f. 2. 1758; [icon] in Sloane, Voy. Jamaica 2: 160, t. 224, f. 3, 4. 1725.

Note: The name does not appear to be in use. The cited Sloane plate and the Browne specimen (633.3 LINN), are members of the Orchidaceae  related to Vanilla, Campylocentrum  or Dendrophylax, and the cited Plumier plate is a Rhipsalis. Barthlott & Taylor (in Bradleya 13: 73. 1995) stated that they intended to propose the name for rejection but no proposal appears to have been published.
