status

 

Laurus cinnamomum Linnaeus   , Species Plantarum 1: 369. 1753 View Cited Treatment .

"Habitat in Zeylona." RCN: 2910.

Type not designated.

Original material: Herb. Hermann 1: 69, 70; 3: 53; 4: 8, 9, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, No. 145 ( BM)   ; Herb. Clifford: 154, Laurus   6, 2 sheets ( BM)   ; Herb. Hermann 5: 117, 118, 119, 121, 122, 123, 124, No. 145 [icon] ( BM)   ; Herb. Linn. No. 518.2 ( LINN)   ; [icon] in Burman, Thes. Zeylan.: 62, t. 27. 1737; [icon] in Hermann, Hort. Lugd.-Bat. Cat.: 129, 655. 1687.

Current name: Cinnamomum verum J. Presl   ( Lauraceae   ).

Note: Kostermans (in Bosser & al., Fl. Mascareignes 153: 14. 1982) indicated 518.1 (LINN) as type but this collection lacks the relevant Species Plantarum number (i.e. “1”) and was a post-1753 addition to the herbarium, and is not original material for the name. He subsequently (in Bull. Bot. Surv. India 25: 126. 1985) treated material in the Clifford herbarium (BM) as the type, but did not distinguish between the two sheets that are associated with the name. As they are evidently not part of a single gathering, Art. 9.15 does not apply. Kostermans (in Ginkgoana 6: frontispiece I. 1986) reproduced the Hermann drawing of a Ceylonese cinnamon garden from Herb. Hermann 5: 411 ( BM).
