status

 

Salvia mexicana Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 25. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Mexicae humentibus." RCN: 203.

Lectotype (Hedge in Jarvis & al. in Taxon 50: 518. 2001): [icon] " Sclarea Mexicana altissima, facie Heliotropii " in Dillenius, Hort. Eltham. 2: 339, t. 254, f. 330. 1732.

Current name: Salvia mexicana L.  ( Lamiaceae  ).

Note: Epling (in J. Bot. 67: 5. 1929) treated Dillenius’ plate as the standard (as distinct from the type) but he later (Repert. Spec. Nov. Regni Veg. Beih. 110: 268. 1939) says "per icon et descriptionem Dillenii constituta est; typum in herb. Dillenio in horto Elthamensi cultum vidi". He adds that Linnaeus’ name "was based upon Dillenius’s plant which is the large flowered form and a well-preserved specimen. S. mexicana  in the Linnean Herbarium [42.28 (LINN)] is a sterile twig". As Dillenius’ specimen is not technically eligible as lectotype, because it was not seen by Linnaeus, Dillenius’ illustration was designated as lectotype by Hedge.
