scientific name

Arenaria grandiflora L.
status

 

Cerastium strictum Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 439. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Alpibus Austriacis, Helveticis." RCN: 3404.

Lectotype (Bechi in Webbia 52: 176, f. 2. 1998): Herb. Burser XI: 119 ( UPS)  .

Current name: Arenaria grandiflora L.  ( Caryophyllaceae  ).

Note: Möschl (in Mitt. Naturwiss. Vereines Steiermark 103: 161. 1973) designated 603.21 (LINN) as type. Despite not indicating the sheet number, it is the only sheet associated with this name, and Ugborogho (in Phyton (Buenos Aires) 35: 175, f. 3. 1977) illustrated this collection. However, this material conflicts with the diagnosis in a number of characters and it is also identifiable as Arenaria montana L. (1755)  . Another collection, Herb. Burser XI: 119 ( UPS), is an explicitly cited specimen and is therefore a syntype, taking precedence for lectotypification purposes (Art. 9.10) over uncited material such as 603.21 (LINN). It matches the protologue well, is a specimen of Arenaria grandiflora L., and Bechi  (in Webbia 52: 176, f. 2. 1998) therefore designated it as the lectotype. Fortunately, C. strictum L. (1753)  cannot displace A. grandiflora L. (1759)  because of the existence of A. strictum Michx.  , so C. strictum  falls into the synonymy of A. grandiflora  .
