Nomenclatural Notes

Status: nom. illeg. nom. superfl. Piper arnottianum ( Miq. ) C.DC. (1869) was based on Chavica arnottiana Miq. (1843). For his P. hapnium, Hooker cited C. arnottiana as a synonym, but excluded “P. arnottianum Miq.” Since Hooker did not exclude C. arnottiana from P. hapnium, the latter was superfluous and illegitimate when published.


Replaced synonym
Chavica arnottiana Miq., Syst. Piperac. (F.A.W. Miquel) 268.
