Plant Name Details

Caryophyllaceae Alsine bocconei Scheele

Flora 26(no. 26): 431. 1843 [14 Jul 1843] (as "Bocconi")


Middle Europe (Europe)


basionym of:Caryophyllaceae Spergularia bocconei (Scheele) Graebn. Syn. Mitteleur. Fl. [Ascherson & Graebner] 5(1, Lief. 11): 849. 1919 [17 Feb 1919]

Remarks: Eponymy: Paolo Boccone (1633-1704). Some works use the published epithet bocconi with a belief that Scheele implicitly latinized Boccone as Bocconus, but this is not acceptable under the ICN Art. 60.7 (omission of the final vowel from a personal name not allowed in epithet formation)
