Cereus peruvianus (L.) Mill.
status

 

Cactus peruvianus Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 467. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Jamaicae, Peru apricis aridis maritimis." RCN: 3577.

Lectotype (Heath in Calyx 2: 70. 1992): [icon] " Euphorbii arbor Cerei effigie, sive Peruvianus Cereus vulgi " in Plantin, Pl. Stirp. Icon. 2: 25. 1581.

Current name: Cereus peruvianus (L.) Mill.  ( Cactaceae  ).

Note: Keisling (in Darwiniana 24: 444. 1982) provided a neotype for Cereus peruvianus Mill. (1768)  . He did not regard this name as a new combination based on Cactus peruvianus L.  so did not typify the latter and, in fact, suggested that it should be rejected as a nomen dubium. Hunt & Taylor (in Bradleya 10: 19. 1992), however, rejected this interpretation, and the name was formally typified by Heath.
