scientific name

Ballota hispanica (L.) Benth.
status

 

Marrubium hispanicum Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 583. 1753.

"Habitat in Hispania." RCN: 4260.

Lectotype (Heywood in Agron. Lusit. 20: 202. 1959): Herb. Clifford: 312, Marrubium  7 (BM-000646091)  .

Current name: Ballota hispanica (L.) Benth.  ( Lamiaceae  ).

Note: Lacaita (in J. Linn. Soc., Bot. 47: 166. 1925) concluded that the name should be abandoned as excessively confused. Heywood (1959) argued that Lacaita was wrong to reject the Clifford material, and that it must be the lectotype, also discussing the possibility that rejection of the name might be necessary Patzak (in Ann. Naturhist. Mus. Wien 63: 58, 67-69. 1959) followed Heywood as to typification, but rejected the name as ambiguous, taking up B. hirsuta Benth.  for the Spanish plant, and B. rupestris (Biv.) Vis.  for the Eastern Mediterranean taxon. However, no formal proposal for the rejection of the name has been made.
