scientific name

Cerastium arvense L.
status

 

Cerastium repens Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 439. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Gallia, Italia." RCN: 3403.

Lectotype (Bechi in Cafferty & Jarvis in Taxon 53: 1051. 2004): [icon] "Myosotis, polygoni folio canescente" in Vaillant, Bot. Paris.: 141, t. 30, f. 5. 1727.

Current name: Cerastium arvense L.  ( Caryophyllaceae  ).

Note: Khalaf & Stace (in Watsonia 23: 482. 2001) said that the name is "of uncertain application. No type specimen has been traced: the specimen in LINN is not a type" and is identifiable as C. arvense  . They noted the occasional usage of C. repens  in the sense of C. tomentosum L.  and C. biebersteinii  DC. The only extant original element is the Vaillant illustration, also identifiable as C. arvense  , and Bechi’s formal designation of it as lectotype resulted in C. repens  falling into the synonymy of C. arvense  .
