Carpinus faginea Lindl.


7. Carpinus faginea Lindl.  

Plantae Asiaticae Rariores 2: 50 ( Wallich 1831). – Type: India [Uttar Pradesh], Gurwal, Kamrup [Kamroop] s.n. (holo-: CGE?).

C. latibracteata Lindl.   nom. nud. in sched. – Note: this name is only known from one specimen. It also bears the notes “Wallich H.I.” and “Lindley 1830”, however, neither Wallich nor Lindley were in Kumaon in 1830. Likely, it is material from Wallich’s collection (by Robert Blinkworth?), and the name was written onto the specimen by Lindley in 1830 [ India, Kamaon [Kumaon], s. coll., s.n. (K!)], but never published.
