status

 

Aloe perfoliata Linnaeus   , Species Plantarum 1: 319. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Aethiopia." RCN: 2511.

Lectotype (Reynolds, Aloes S. Africa: 89, f. 69. 1950): Herb. Linn. No. 442.1 ( LINN)   .

Generitype of Aloe Linnaeus   (vide Hitchcock, Prop. Brit. Bot.: 146. 1929).

Current name: Aloe perfoliata   L. ( Liliaceae   / Asphodelaceae   ).

Note: The lectotype, while clearly an Aloe   , apparently cannot be identified to species. Wijnands (Bot. Commelins: 124. 1983) provided current names for each unnamed variety listed in the original description, as did Newton (in Eggli, Ill. Handb. Succ. Pl., Monocots: 133. 2001). The latter appears to treat this name as synonymous with A. ferox Mill.
