status

 

Calophyllum calaba Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 514. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Indiis." RCN: 3869.

Lectotype (Stevens in Jarvis & ah., Regnum Veg. 127: 28. 1993): Herb. Hermann 3: 3, No. 202 (BM-000621800)  .

Generitype of Calophyllum Linnaeus  (vide Green, Prop. Brit. Bot.: 161. 1929).

Current name: Calophyllum calaba L.  ( Clusiaceae  ).

Note: Furtado (in Gard. Bull. Straits Settlem. 11: 258-260. 1941), followed by Howard (in J. Arnold Arbor. 43: 397. 1962), argued that the name should be applied to the New World element but did not typify the name. D’Arcy & Keating (in Ann. Missouri Bot. Gard. 66: 563. 1969), followed by Lourteig & Fosberg (in Phytologia 57: 153-155, f. 1. 1985), designated Plumier, Nov. Amer. Gen.: t. 18 (1703) as lectotype but this illustration does not form part of the protologue, so is ineligible. Kostermans (in Dassanayake & Fosberg, Revised Handb. Fl. Ceylon 1: 96. 1980) indicated Clifford material (BM, unseen by him and apparently not preserved) as the type. Stevens in J. Arnold Arbor. 61: 256. 1980) indicated the several specimens in Herb. Hermann (1: 65; 2: 42, 52; 3: 3, BM) as syntypes, also providing an extensive discussion of the problem in Manilal (Bot. Hist. Hort. Malab.: 168-176. 1980). Stevens (in Jarvis & ah., Regnum Veg 127: 28. 1993) subsequently made an explicit choice of the material in Herb. Hermann 3: 3 ( BM) as the lectotype.
