status

 

Echinops ritro Linnaeus   , Species Plantarum 2: 815. 1753.

"Habitat in Gallia, Sibiria." RCN: 6721.

Lectotype (Jeffrey in Curtis’s Bot. Mag. 180: 78. 1974): [icon] " Ritro floribus caeruleis " in Plantin, Pl. Stirp. Icon. 2: 8. 1581.

Current name: Echinops ritro L. subsp. ritro   ( Asteraceae   ).

Note: Bobrov (in Schischkin & Bobrov, Fl. U.R.S.S. 27: 31. 1962; Engl. Transl.: 31. 1998) said that the Gmelin plate associated with the unnamed var. beta "can be considered as the type of the species" but added that this was only a preliminary solution (in maintaining the name for a Russian, rather than a south European plant). He added that to solve the problem, it would be necessary to determine to which species the plant grown in Uppsala "i.e. the formal type specimen" belongs. He clearly did not designate the Gmelin plate as a formal lectotype.
