scientific name

Chamaecrista nictitans (L.) Moench
status

 

Cassia nictitans Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 380. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Virginia." RCN: 2986.

Lectotype (Pennell in Bull. Torrey Bot. Club 44: 356. 1917): [icon] " Cassia  calycibus acutis, floribus pentandris" in Linnaeus, Hort. Cliff.: 497, t. 36. 1738.

Current name: Chamaecrista nictitans (L.) Moench  ( Fabaceae  : Caesalpinioideae  ).

Note: In order to distinguish between this name and Chamaecrista nictitans Moench  (non (L.) Moench), Reveal (in Taxon 41: 135. 1992) proposed the conservation of the Moench name with the same type as the Linnaean name. However, this was not recommended by the Committee for Spermatophyta (in Taxon 43: 273. 1994) who voted that Ch. nictitans  be treated as a new combination based on C. nictitans L.  , the proposal therefore being unnecessary.
