scientific name

Centaurea margaritacea Ten.
status

 

Centaurea splendens Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 914. 1753.

"Habitat in Helvetia, Hispania, Sibiria." RCN: 6609.

Lectotype (Greuter in Willdenowia 33: 56. 2003): Gerber, Herb. Linn. No. 1030.39 ( LINN)  .

Current name: Centaurea margaritacea Ten.  ( Asteraceae  ).

Note: Lacaita (in Nuovo Giorn. Bot. Ital., n.s., 30: 205-209. 1923) discussed the taxonomically diverse original elements in some detail, identifying material on sheets 1030.39 and 1030.40 (LINN) as C. margaritacea Ten.  , and that on 1030.38 as C. deusta Ten. He  followed earlier authors, including Boissier, in discarding the name as a nomen confusum. Greuter (l.c.) subsequently designated 1030.39 (LINN) as lectotype, noting its identity and concluding that Art. 57 prevents the use of C. splendens  in the sense of its type, or any other sense. No formal proposal has been made for the rejection of the name.
