scientific name

Cyperus compressus L.
status

 

Cyperus compressus Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 46. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Americae septentrionalis pratis arenosis." RCN: 392.

Lectotype (Tucker in Syst. Bot. Monogr. 43: 103. 1994): Clayton 598 (BM-000051698).

Current name: Cyperus compressus L.  ( Cyperaceae  ).

Note: There appear to be problems with this name. Tucker (in Syst. Bot. Monogr. 2: 35. 1983) said that the type was "probably based on Sloane’s plate". However, later (in Syst. Bot. Monogr. 43: 103. 1994) he explicitly recognised Clayton 598 (BM) as the (holo)type, noting that McVaugh had pointed out his earlier “lapse”. Unfortunately, although Sloane’s plant is what has been known as C. compressus  , Clayton’s specimen is apparently of C. rivularis Kunth, and Tucker  (who calls this C. bipartitus Torr.  ) was presumably unaware that C. compressus  should now displace the latter.
