scientific name

Cressa cretica L.
status

 

Herniaria lenticulata Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 1: 218. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Hispaniae montibus Escurial, Monspelii." RCN: 1797.

Neotype (designated here by Staples): Herb. Linn. No. 312.5 ( LINN)  .

Current name: Cressa cretica L.  ( Convolvulaceae  ).

Note: Burtt & Lewis (in Kew Bull. 7: 337-338. 1952) argued that although 312.5 (LINN) is identifiable as Cressa cretica L.  ( Convolvulaceae  ), it is not original material for H. lenticulata  , which should be based instead on material in Herb. Bauhin ( BAS). This, too, would not be original material but Burtt & Lewis declined to make any formal type choice. Chaudhri (Rev. Paronychiinae: 398. 1968), however, excluded this name from Herniaria  and treated it as a synonym of Cressa cretica  . In the absence of original material, this synonymy is formalised by the designation of 312.5 (LINN) as a neotype.
