scientific name

Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp. subsp. unguiculata
status

 

Dolichos unguiculatus Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 725. 1753.

"Habitat in Barbados." RCN: 5332.

Neotype (Westphal, Pulses Ethiopia, Taxon. Agric. Signif.: 213. 1974): Westphal 8682 (WAG; iso- K, P).

Current name: Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp. subsp. unguiculata  ( Fabaceae  : Faboideae  ).

Note: Piper (in Torreya 12: 190. 1912) interpreted this name via material in LINN (evidently sheet 900.5) identifiable as Phaseolus antillanus Urb.  , for which he substituted P. unguiculatus (L.) Piper  . However, as queried by Merrill (in Trans. Amer. Philos. Soc., n.s., 24: 215. 1935), this is unannotated by Linnaeus and is not original material for the name. The absence of type material was noted by authors such as Fawcett & Rendle (Fl. Jamaica 4: 69. 1920), and this uncertainty led some to reject it informally. See review by Westphal who provided a neotype for the name.
