scientific name

Eleusine indica (L.) Gaertn.
status

 

Cynosurus indicus Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 72. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Indiis." RCN: 611.

Lectotype (Phillips in Cafferty & al. in Taxon 49: 249. 2000): [icon] " Gramen Dactyloides  spicis deorsum aristatis" in Burman, Thes. Zeylan.: 106, t. 47, f. 1. 1737. - Epitype (Phillips in Cafferty & al. in Taxon 49: 249. 2000): Sri Lanka. Central Province, Matale District, 5 miles South of Matale on Kandy Road, 1970, Clayton 5330 (K; iso- PDA, US).

Current name: Eleusine indica (L.) Gaertn.  ( Poaceae  ).

Note: Although Kerguélen (in Lejeunia, n.s., 75: 140. 1975) stated "Type: …LINN”, this is not accepted as a formal typification, for the reasons explained by Cafferty & al. (in Taxon 49: 240. 2000). Sherif & Siddiqi (in Jafri & El-Gadi, Fl. Libya 145: 258. 1988) indicated Herb. Linn. 91.15 ( LINN) as type but this specimen was evidently a post-1753 addition to the herbarium and not original material for the name. Phillips (in Kew Bull. 27: 256. 1972) and Poilecot (in Boissiera 56: 235. 1999) indicated the Burman plate as perhaps the type (i.e. with “?”), which is therefore ineffective. Phillips subsequently formalised this choice, with the additional designation of an epitype.
