Plant Name Details

Rutaceae Murraya alternans Swingle

J. Wash. Acad. Sci. 28(12): 532. 1938 [15 Feb 1938]

Nomenclatural Notes:

nom. illeg. nom. superfl.


taxonomic synonym:Rutaceae Limonia alternifolia Kurz J. Asiat. Soc. Bengal, Pt. 2, Nat. Hist. 42(2): 64. 1873

replaced synonym:Rutaceae Limonia alternans Wall. ex Hook. Fl. Brit. India [J. D. Hooker] 1(pt. 3): 508. 1875 [Feb 1875]

Remarks: Voigt (1845) published "L. ? alternans, Wall." (invalid); Kurz (1873), either deliberately or as an oversight altered the preceding epithet and validly published "Limonia alternifolia Wall. ap. Voigt;" Hooker chose to correct the 1875 epithet "alternifolia" to "alternans," cited "L. alternans, Wall, in Voigt Hart Calc. 139 (1845)" as an accepted name and referred to "Kurz in Joum. As. Soc. Beng. 1873, ii. 64 (L. alternifolia)" (sic). Kurz (Forest Fl. Burma 192. 1877) chose to use "L. alternans, Wall; H.f. Ind. Fl. i. 508." as an accepted name (& rejected his own 1873 name). Swingle referred to the preceding publications, chose to accept Hooker's correction, and cited "(Kurz)" as the parenthetical author for the name M. alternans.
