status

 

Cinchona officinalis Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 172. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Loxa Peruviae." RCN: 1360.

Lectotype (Jarvis & al., Regnum Veg. 127: 34. 1993): [icon] " Quinquina  " in Condamine in Mém. Acad. Roy. Sci. Paris 1738: 226, t. 5. 1738. - Voucher: Herb. Jussieu 9899+B ( P-JU)  . - Epitype (Andersson in Mem. New York Bot. Gard. 80: 55. 1998): Herb. Jussieu 9899+B ( P-JU)  .

Generitype of Cinchona Linnaeus. 

Current name: Cinchona officinalis L.  ( Rubiaceae  ).

Note: From correspondence between Linnaeus and Mútis in 1764 (quoted by Jaramillo-Arongo, The Conquest of Malaria: 82. 1950), it is clear that Linnaeus’ original 1753 concept was based solely on Condamine’s account of 1738. Jarvis & al. (in Regnum Veg. 127: 34. 1993) indicated Condamine’s t. 5 as the holotype which was incorrect in that a second plate, t. 6, also formed part of the protologue. However, this statement is correctable under Art. 9.8, leaving t. 5 as the lectotype, a choice also accepted by Andersson (in Harling & Andersson, Fl. Ecuador 50: 51. 1994) and others.

The type figure is reproduced by Jaramillo-Arongo (l.c.: t. 23), along with a drawing (t. 25) made by Santisteban which Mútis sent to Linnaeus.
