status

 

Momordica charantia Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 1009. 1753.

"Habitat in India." RCN: 7315.

Lectotype (Jeffrey in Milne-Redhead & Polhill, Fl. Trop. E. Africa, Cucurbitaceae  : 31. 1967): Herb. Clifford: 451, Momordica  2 (BM-000647445)  .

Generitype of Momordica Linnaeus  (vide Green, Prop. Brit. Bot.: 190. 1929).

Current name: Momordica charantia L.  ( Cucurbitaceae  ).

Note: Momordica balsamina  was treated as the generitype by Britton & Millspaugh (Bahama Fl.: 425. 1920; see McNeill & al. in Taxon 36: 378. 1987). However, under Art. 10.5, Ex. 7 (a voted example) of the Vienna Code, this is a type choice made under the American Code and is to be replaced under Art. 10.5b by Green’s choice (Prop. Brit. Bot.: 190. 1929) of M. charantia L.
