scientific name

Clitoria ternatea L.
status

 

Clitoria ternatea Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 753. 1753.

"Habitat in India." RCN: 5366.

Lectotype (Wijnands, Bot. Commelins: 161. 1983): Herb. Clifford: 360, Clitoria  1 (BM-000646600)  .

Generitype of Clitoria Linnaeus  (vide Green, Prop. Brit. Bot.: 176. 1929).

Current name: Clitoria ternatea L.  ( Fabaceae  : Faboideae  ).

Note: Fawcett & Rendle (Fl. Jamaica 4: 47. 1920) treated material in LINN and in Herb. Hermann ( BM) as type. Verdcourt (in Milne-Redhead & Polhill, Fl. Trop. E. Africa, Leguminosae 4: 515. 1971), followed by several other authors, indicated material in Herb. Hermann 3: 13, 20; 4: 49 ( BM) as syntypes, but gave no indication of intending to lectotypify the name. Fantz (in Ann. Missouri Bot. Gard. 67: 592. 1980) indicated 902.1 (LINN) as type but this lacks a Species Plantarum number (i.e. “1”), was a post-1753 addition to the herbarium, and is not original material for the name. Wijnands (who chose Clifford material) appears to have been the first to make an explicit type choice.
