scientific name

Bromelia karatas L.
status

 

Bromelia karatas Linnaeus   , Species Plantarum 1: 285. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in America meridionali." RCN: 2266.

Replaced synonym of: Bromelia acanga L. (1767)   , nom. illeg.

Type not designated.

Original material: [icon] in Plumier, Nov. Pl. Amer.: 10, t. 33. 1703.

Generitype of Bromelia Linnaeus   (vide Regel, Gartenflora 17: 67. Mar 1868).

Current name: Bromelia karatas L.   ( Bromeliaceae   ).

Note: Grant & Zijlstra (in Selbyana 19: 96. 1998) argue that B. karatas   is the generitype, the choice having been made by Regel (in Gartenflora 17: 67. 1868) which therefore pre-dates the choice of B. pinguin   made by Hitchcock (Prop. Brit. Bot.: 144. 1929). See discussion of the species name by Smith (in Phytologia 15: 173. 1967) who noted that Linnaeus’ "panicula diffusa" is not shown by the cited Plumier element to which the name had long been attached. Espejo-Serna & al. (in Selbyana 25: 39. 2004) indicated " C. Plumier s.n. (LINN)" as the holotype but there is no such material present in LINN.
