scientific name

Cuscuta americana L.
status

 

Cuscuta americana Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 124. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Virginia." RCN: 1024.

Lectotype (Engelmann in Trans. Acad. Sci. St. Louis 1: 482. 1859): Herb. Linn. No. 170.5 ( LINN)  .

Current name: Cuscuta americana L.  ( Cuscutaceae  ).

Note: Believing none of the original elements to correspond with usage, Reveal & al. (in Taxon 39: 360. 1990) proposed the name for conservation with a conserved type. The Committee for Spermatophyta, however, ruled that Engelmann had formally chosen (the post-1753) 170.5 (LINN) as lectotype, and (in Taxon 42: 876. 1993) “recommends… that this typification be accepted". This rendered the conservation proposal unnecessary and it was not recommended.
