scientific name

Geranium lucidum L.
status

 

Geranium lucidum Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 682. 1753.

"Habitat in Europae rupibus umbrosis." RCN: 4988.

Lectotype (Ghafoor in Jafri & El-Gadi, Fl. Libya 63: 43. 1978): Herb. Linn. No. 858.72 ( LINN)  .

Current name: Geranium lucidum L.  ( Geraniaceae  ).

Note: Stearn (in Biol. J. Linn. Soc. 5: 7-9, 11. 1973) provided a detailed review of the protologue, particularly with reference to Linnaeus’ account of finding the plant in Gotland. In this account of Linnaeus’ Öland and Gotland journey of 1741, Stearn treated Torsborgen in Gotland as the restricted type locality, and noted the existence of 858.72 (LINN). In his paper, he attributed restricted type localities irrespective of whether any material existed in LINN and, where specimens do exist, he does not refer to any of them as type specimens. The collection subsequently designated as the type by Ghafoor shows no annotation associating it with Gotland.
