scientific name

Origanum syriacum L.
status

 

Origanum syriacum Linnaeus   , Species Plantarum 2: 590. 1753.

"Habitat - - - –” RCN: 4295.

Lectotype (Paton in Jarvis & al. in Taxon 50: 516. 2001): [icon] "Marum syriacum" in Plantin, Pl. Stirp. Icon.: 499. 1581.

Current name: Origanum syriacum L.   ( Lamiaceae   ).

Note: As pointed out by Harley (in Watsonia 14: 86. 1982), Ietswaart (in Leiden Bot. Ser. 4: 87. 1980) designated 743.12 (LINN) as the type of both O. syriacum   and O. maru L. Harley   stated "while the sheet indicated is unquestionably the type of O. maru   , it can hardly be the type of O. syriacum   , which apparently does not occur among the sheets in Linnaeus’ herbarium in London, and must be looked for elsewhere". Meikle (Fl. Cyprus 2: 1267. 1985) stated "TYPE: Probably the illustration in Lobel...t. 499 (1591)", i.e. the Plantin illustration, but his use of the word “probably” contradicts Art. 7.11 of the Code.
