Plant Name Details

Bombacaceae Adansonia L.

Sp. Pl. 2: 1190. 1753 [1 May 1753] View page [BHL]

Nomenclatural Notes:

nom. inval. Linnaeus published "Adansonia" as a monotypic genus with a single species ("A. digitata"); he did not provide any description, but referred to descriptions in earlier publications (not acceptable; vide Melbourne Code Art. 38.5 last sentence). Generic names in Linnaeus’s Species plantarum, ed. 1 (1753) are associated with the first subsequent description given under those names in Linnaeus’s Genera plantarum, ed. 5 (1754) (vide Art. 13.4). But Adansonia is not included in the 1754 publication
