Carum carvi Linnaeus var. peregrinum Linnaeus
status

 

Carum carvi Linnaeus var. peregrinum Linnaeus  , Demonstr. Pl. Horto Upsaliensi: 8. 1753, nom. inval.

RCN: 2101.

Type not relevant.

Note: The protologue consists of the name " Carum peregrinum  ", or possibly " Carum carvi var. peregrinum  " - the epithet is not absolutely in alignment in the column with the previous epithet, i.e. “carvi”, which led Rickett (in Lloydia 18: 54. 1955) to query this. The epithet “peregrinum” is followed by “(u)”, which provides a link to a footnote which reads as follows:

"(u) Carvi peregrinum difficile determinatur; duplo majus est Carvo Carvi dicto, ex australibus terris allatum.".

There is nothing in the footnote that could serve as a validating description, and Carum peregrinum  (or C. carvi var. peregrinum  ) must therefore be regarded as a nomen nudum.
