scientific name

Crepis pygmaea L.
status

 

Crepis pygmaea Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 805. 1753.

"Habitat in Alpibus Italiae ad Nursiam prope lacum pilati." RCN: 5877.

Lectotype (designated here by Baldini): [icon] "Hieracium alpinum incanum saxatile Prunellae foliis integris" in Boccone, Mus. Piante Rar. Sicilia: 33, t. 24. 1697.

Current name: Crepis pygmaea L.  ( Asteraceae  ).

Note: Babcock (in Univ. Calif. Publ. Bot. 22: 241. 1947) said the type is in LINN "and is illustrated in fig. 20a". The only material apparently associated with this name is 955.1 (LINN) but it bears little similarity to Babcock’s drawing, and also carries a determination (in sched.) of Crepis nana Richards.  made by Babcock himself in 1925. No other Crepis  specimen in LINN appears to match Babcock’s f. 20a. The material on sheet 955.1 in fact conflicts with the protologue, while Boccone’s cited description and plate (from which Linnaeus took the precise locality information) agrees well both with it, and current usage of the name.
