scientific name

Acanthus mollis L.
status

 

Acanthus mollis Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 639. 1753.

"Habitat in Italiae, Siciliae, humentibus, duris." RCN: 4646.

Lectotype (Brummitt in Jarvis & al., Regnum Veg. 127: 14. 1993): Herb. Clifford: 326, Acanthus  1 (BM-000646246)  .

Generitype of Acanthus Linnaeus  (vide Green, Prop. Brit. Bot.: 170. 1929).

Current name: Acanthus mollis L.  ( Acanthaceae  ).

Note: The type choice has been attributed to Hossain (in Davis, Fl. Turkey 7: 27. 1982) by some authors (e.g. Wasshausen & Wood in Contr. U. S. Natl. Herb. 49: 10. 2004). However, this is incorrect as Hossain notes the existence not only of Clifford but also of LINN (sheet 816.1) material, and refers to neither as the type.
