scientific name

Waltheria indica L.
status

 

Waltheria americana Linnaeus   , Species Plantarum 2: 673. 1753.

"Habitat in Bahama, Barbiches, Surinamo." RCN: 4911.

Lectotype (Verdoorn in Bothalia 13: 275. 1981): Herb. Linn. No. 852.1 ( LINN)   .

Generitype of Waltheria Linnaeus   (vide Green, Prop. Brit. Bot.: 172. 1929).

Current name: Waltheria indica L.   ( Sterculiaceae   ).

Note: St John (in Phytologia 33: 89-92. 1976) discussed the specimens in LINN, and stated that he had studied "the types of both of the Linnaean species". However, in this he did not distinguish between 852.1 and 852.2 (LINN), which are not part of a single gathering and so Art. 9.15 does not apply. Verdoorn’s type choice appears to be the earliest.
