Britton and Brown (Ill. Fl. N. U.S., ed. 2, 2: 24. 1913), who followed the American Code, chose S. soda as the type species of the genus Salsola; their designation is treated as largely mechanical and is rejected (vide Art. 10.5(b)). Hedge (Regnum Veg. 127: 84. 1993) also designated S. soda as the type species. In contrast, Hitchc. (in Prop. Brit. Bot. 137. Aug 1929) designated S. kali L. as the type species.
