scientific name

Cenchrus echinatus L.
status

 

Cenchrus echinatus Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 1050. 1753.

"Habitat in Jamaica, Curassao." RCN: 7585.

Lectotype (Veldkamp in Jarvis & al., Regnum Veg. 127: 31. 1993): Herb. A. van Royen No. 912.356-116 ( L)  .

Generitype of Cenchrus Linnaeus  (vide Green, Prop. Brit. Bot.: 193. 1929).

Current name: Cenchrus echinatus L.  ( Poaceae  ).

Note: Hitchcock (in Contr. U. S. Natl. Herb. 12: 127. 1908) and a number of later authors treated 1217.7 (LINN) as the type but this collection is a post-1753 addition to the herbarium and ineligible as type. Clayton & Renvoize (in Polhill, Fl. Trop. E. Africa, Gramineae  3: 695. 1982) indicated a Dickinson collection from Bermuda (Herb. Sloane, BM) as a syntype, but it was not seen by Linnaeus and cannot be original material for the name.
