scientific name

Metalasia muricata (L.) D. Don
status

 

Gnaphalium muricatum Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 852. 1753.

"Habitat in Aethiopia." RCN: 6153.

Lectotype (Hilliard & Burtt in Bot. J. Linn. Soc. 82: 244. 1981): Herb. Clifford: 402, Gnaphalium  17 [ “18”] (BM-000647013)  .

Current name: Metalasia muricata (L.) D. Don  ( Asteraceae  ).

Note: Hilliard & Burtt (in Bot. J. Linn. Soc. 82: 244. 1981) indicated Gnaphalium  sheet no. 18 in Herb. Clifford ( BM) as lectotype, presumably in error for no. 17, filed at the end of the genus. Karis (in Opera Bot. 99: 121. 1989) noted Hilliard & Burtt’s lectotypification, correcting the sheet number from “18” to “17”, and pointing out that sheet no. 18 bears material of Conyza candida L.  (= Inula candida (L.) Cass.  ) and is totally inconsistent with the description of Metalasia muricata  .
