scientific name

Juniperus virginiana L.
status

 

Juniperus virginiana Linnaeus   , Species Plantarum 2: 1039. 1753.

"Habitat in Virginia, Carolina." RCN: 7505.

Lectotype (designated here by Farjon): Herb. Linn. No. 1198.7 ( LINN)   .

Current name: Juniperus virginiana L.   ( Cupressaceae   ).

Note: Fernald & Griscom (in Rhodora 37: 133. 1935) discussed the original material and treated a Clayton collection, which they called "Clayton 884", as the type. However, it has not proved possible to locate a sheet annotated in this way. There is a collection (BM) from Gronovius annotated "Rode Cedar ex Nova Anglia 1735, febr. no. 32" by him, which may have been the sheet they intended but, if so, it is not original material for the name. Farjon (Monogr. Cupressaceae Sciadopitys   : 399. 2005) indicated 1198.7 (LINN) as lectotype, wrongly attributing the choice to Jarvis & al. (in Regnum Veg. 127: 58. 1993) where it does not, in fact, appear. As Farjon’s statement was published after 1 Jan 2001, the omission of the phrase "designated here" or an equivalent (Art. 7.11) means that the choice was not effective, but this is rectified here.
