scientific name

Carex atrata L.
status

 

Carex atrata Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 976. 1753.

"Habitat in Alpibus Europae." RCN: 7082.

Lectotype (Marshall in J. Bot. 45: 366. 1907): Herb. Linn. No. 1100.52 ( LINN)  .

Current name: Carex atrata L.  ( Cyperaceae  ).

Note: Kukkonen (in Mem. Soc. Fauna Fl. Fenn. 56: 151-156. 1980), followed by Egorova (Sedges Russia: 393. 1999), makes a very detailed study of the original elements (which include several species), illustrating many of them, and designating a Clifford sheet, corresponding with usage, as lectotype. However, Kukkonen overlooked Marshall’s unfortunate earlier choice of 1100.52 (LINN), a specimen of C. atrofusca Schkuhr. The  grounds for rejecting Marshall’s choice appear poor, and a conservation proposal may be necessary.
