scientific name

Silene aegyptiaca (L.) L.
status

 

Cucubalus aegyptiacus Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 415. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Aegypto." RCN: 3228.

Neotype (Hosny in Cafferty & Jarvis in Taxon 53: 1051. 2004): Israel. Jerusalem, 17 Mar 1911, J.E. Dinsmore 618 (CAI).

Current name: Silene aegyptiaca (L.) L.  f. ( Caryophyllaceae  ).

Note: Melzheimer (in Rechinger, Fl. Iranica 163: 499. 1988) stated “Typus… Herb. Linn.", but this does not distinguish between sheets 582.8 and 582.10, both of which bear the epithet “aegyptiacus”. However, on sheet 582.8 this epithet has been deleted in favour of "5 stellatus" (written by Linnaeus), and the material is a good match for the protologue of C. stellatus L.  , of which name it is the lectotype. Sheet 582.10 bears material received from Latour, lacks a Species Plantarum number (i.e. “7”), and was received after 1753. Neither sheet is original material for C. aegyptiacus  . Linnaeus mentioned Hasselquist in the protologue but, in the absence of any extant material, Hosny designated a neotype.
