scientific name

Erodium moschatum (L.)
status

 

Geranium moschatum (Linnaeus) Linnaeus   , Systema Naturae, ed. 10, 2: 1143. 1759.

"Habitat [in Anglia.]" RCN: 4964.

Basionym: Geranium cicutarium L. var. moschatum L. (1753)   .

Lectotype (designated here by Aedo): Herb. Burser XVIII: 58 ( UPS)   .

Current name: Erodium moschatum (L.)   L’Hér. ( Geraniaceae   ).

Note: Greuter (in Candollea 44: 563, f. 2. 1989), citing Rothmaler (in Repert. Spec. Nov. Regni Veg. 49: 272-281. 1940) has argued that this new combination for G. cicutarium var. moschatum L. (1753)   was first made in Fl. Anglica 20. 1754. However, Stearn (Introd. Ray’s Syn. Meth. Stirp. Brit. (Ray Soc. ed.): 56. 1973), in his analysis of names in Fl. Anglica, treated this as a repeat of Linnaeus’ use of moschatum at varietal rank from 1753. Brummitt & Meikle (in Watsonia 19: 181-183. 1993) have argued (in the context of " Primula acaulis (L.) L.   ", where there is a similar situation) that there are typographical variants of the thesis which make it unreasonable to interpret this as a new combination.
