scientific name

Pycnanthemum virginianum (L.) B.L. Rob. & Fernald
status

 

Satureja virginiana Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 567. 1753.

"Habitat in Virginia." RCN: 4154.

Replaced synonym of: Thymus virginicus L. (1774)  , nom. illeg.

Type not designated.

Original material: Herb. Clifford: 305, Clinopodium  3 ( BM)  ; Clayton 141 (BM); Herb. Linn. No. 744.21 ( LINN)  ; [icon] in Hermann, Parad. Bat.: 218. 1698; [icon] in Boccone, Mus. Piante Rar. Sicilia: 161, t. 115. 1697; [icon] in Morison, Pl. Hist. Univ. 3: 371, s. 11, t. 7, f. 8. 1699; [icon] in Plukenet, Phytographia: t. 54, f. 2. 1691; Almag. Bot.: 110. 1696.

Current name: Pycnanthemum virginianum (L.) B.L. Rob. & Fernald  ( Lamiaceae  ).

Note: Epling (in J. Bot. 67: 7. 1929) reviewed the original elements for the name and described as “standard” the Clifford sheet. This and most other elements are identifiable with the species sometimes known as Pycnanthemum linifolium Pursh. However  , 744.21 (LINN) is identifiable as the closely related P. lanceolatum Pursh, and Grant & Epling  (in Univ. Calif. Publ. Bot. 20: 221. 1943) reversed the usage adopted by Epling, interpreting the Linnaean name instead via 744.21 (LINN) in the sense of P. lanceolatum  . However, they did not designate a type. The name appears to remain untypified.
