scientific name

Boerhavia erecta L.
status

 

Boerhavia erecta Linnaeus   , Species Plantarum 1: 3. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Vera Cruce." RCN: 17.

Neotype (Fawcett & Rendle, Fl. Jamaica 3: 148. 1914): Herb. Linn. No. 9.1 ( LINN)   .

Current name: Boerhavia erecta L.   ( Nyctaginaceae   ).

Note: This was treated as the generitype of Boerhavia   by Standley (in Contr. U. S. Natl. Herb. 12: 375. 1909). However, under Art. 10.5, Ex. 7 (a voted example) of the Vienna Code, this is a type choice made under the American Code and is to be replaced under Art. 10.5b by Hitchcock’s choice (Prop. Brit. Bot.: 115. 1929) of B. diffusa L.  

Gilbert (in Jarvis & al, Regnum Veg. 127: 25. 1993) formally designated 9.1 (LINN) as a neotype. However, under Art. 9.8, earlier choices of this post-1753 sheet as lectotype are to be corrected, and that of Fawcett & Rendle appears to be the earliest.
