Plant Name Details

Solanaceae Saracha diffusa Miers

Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist. ser. 2, 3(18): 447, no. 14. 1849 [Jun 1849]


Peru (Western South America, Southern America)

Type Information

Type Remarks:

"v. in herb. Hook. (Cuesta de Purruchucho, Mathews, no. 775, S. contorta noncupata.)"

Remarks: Miers simultaneously published “14.” Saracha diffusa (p. 447) and “23.” S. diffusa (p. 451); both homonyms are legitimate. Dunal and A. De Candolle (Prodr. 13(1): 684. 1852) renamed species no. 23 as S. miersii Dunal & A.DC., and on p. 683, they retained the name S. diffusa for species 14, so that the latter name is perceived as having priority over its homonym.
