scientific name

Guazuma ulmifolia Lam.
status

 

Theobroma guazuma Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 782. 1753.

"Habitat in Jamaicae campestribus." RCN: 5723.

Lectotype ( Cristóbal in Bonplandia 6: 190, f. 2. 1989): Herb. Clifford: 379, Theobroma  2 ( BM)  .

Current name: Guazuma ulmifolia Lam.  ( Sterculiaceae  ).

Note: Freytag (in Ceiba 1: 220. 1951) and some later authors wrongly indicated as the type sheet 934.2 (LINN), a Mútis collection received long after 1753. Similarly, Verdcourt (in Dassanayake & al., Revised Handb. Fl. Ceylon 9: 421. 1995) wrongly indicated 934.3 (LINN), a Patrick Browne collection not received by Linnaeus until 1758, as lectotype. Cristóbal’s type choice is correct, though her treatment of the Clifford material as a neotype, rather than the lectotype, was noted and corrected by Fryxell (in McVaugh, Fl. Novo-Galiciana 3: 123. 2001).
