scientific name

Cucurbita pepo L.
status

 

Cucurbita pepo Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 1010. 1753.

"Habitat - - - –” RCN: 7324.

Lectotype (Keraudren-Aymonin in Aubréville & Leroy, Fl. Cambodge Laos Viêt-Nam 15: 105. 1975): Herb. Linn. No. 1151.4 ( LINN)  .

Generitype of Cucurbita Linnaeus. 

Current name: Cucurbita pepo L.  ( Cucurbitaceae  ).

Note: Cucurbita pepo  , with Herb. Burser XVII: 103 ( UPS) as type, was proposed as conserved type of the genus by Jarvis (in Taxon 41: 562. 1992). However, the proposal was eventually ruled unnecessary by the General Committee (see Barrie, l.c. 55: 795-796. 2006 for a review of the history of this and related proposals).

Bailey (in Gentes Herb. 2: 79. 1929) reproduced the protologue, and various of the original elements (including a Daléchamps figure and a LINN sheet), and provided an extensive discussion. Keraudren-Aymonin’s (1975) type choice of 1151.4 (LINN) has priority over that of the Burser material designated by Jeffrey (in Jarvis, l.c. 41: 562. 1992) and becomes the type with the failure of the conservation proposal.
