scientific name

Luffa acutangula (L.) Roxb.
status

 

Cucumis acutangulus Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 1011. 1753.

"Habitat in Tataria, China." RCN: 7332.

Type not designated.

Original material: Herb. Linn. No. 394.15 ( S)  ; [icon] in Grew, Mus. Reg. Societ.: 229, t. 17. 1681; [icon] in Plukenet, Phytographia: t. 172, f. 1. 1692; Almag. Bot.: 123. 1696.

Current name: Luffa acutangula (L.) Roxb.  ( Cucurbitaceae  ).

Note: Jeffrey (in Kew Bull. 34: 792. 1980), and many later authors have treated 1152.7 (LINN) as the type. However, this collection lacks the relevant Species Plantarum number (i.e. “3”) and was a post-1753 addition to the herbarium, and is not original material for the name.
