status

 

Geranium striatum Linnaeus  , Systema Naturae, ed. 10, 2: 1143. 1759, nom. illeg.

["Habitat in Italia."] Cent. I Pl.: 21 (1755). RCN: 4979.

Replaced synonym: Geranium versicolor L. (1755)  .

Lectotype (designated here by Aedo): [icon] " Geranium Romanum  versicolor " in Morison, Pl. Hist. Univ. 2: 516, s. 5, t. 16, f. 24. 1680. - Epitype (designated here by Aedo): Italy. Sicily Nebrodi, cruce de la carretera con el arroyo Torti, 37° 53′N, 14° 39′E, 1,300m, 8 Jun 2000, M.A. Garcia & al. 1481 (MA-645561).

Current name: Geranium versicolor  L ( Geraniaceae  ).

Note: As noted by Nordenstam (in Bot. Not. 114: 277. 1961), this is a superfluous renaming of G. versicolor  !.. (1755). Geranium striatum  also appears in the slightly later reprint of Cent. I Pl. (in Amoen. Acad. 4: 282. Nov 1759).
