scientific name

Hibiscus cannabinus L.
status

 

Hibiscus cannabinus Linnaeus  , Systema Naturae, ed. 10, 2: 1149. 1759.

["Habitat in India."] Sp. Pl., ed. 2, 2: 979 (1763). RCN: 5093.

Neotype (Wijnands, Bot. Commelins: 144. 1983): [icon] " Alcea Bengalensis  spinosissima " in Commelin, Hort. Med. Amstelod. Pl. Rar. 1: 35, t. 18. 1697.

Current name: Hibiscus cannabinus L.  ( Malvaceae  ).

Note: Following a suggestion by Borssum Waalkes (in Blumea 14: 63. 1966), Wijnands treated a Commelin plate as the lectotype. However, this is not cited in the protologue (though it was added in the later account in Sp. Pl., ed. 2, 2: 979. 1763). It is therefore not original material for the name but, in the absence of any original material at all (sheet 875.27 (LINN) is original material for H. sabdariffa L.  ), Wijnands’ statement is treated as correctable to a neotypification (Art. 9.8).
