Nomenclatural Notes

Status: nom. inval. Contrary Art. 41.3 (Melbourne Code, 2012), published without direct or indirect reference

Remarks

Although this name might be considered to be based on Salix lucida Muhl., Neue Schriften Ges. Naturf. Freunde Berlin 4: 239. 1803, as suggested by Merrill (1949: 106), Rafinesque did not refer to Muhlenberg. Thus, the existence of a later homonym, S. lucida J. Walker, Essays Nat. Hist. & Rural Econ. 462. 1808, nom. illeg., precludes treating Rafinesque's action as being an indirect reference to Muhlenberg (Lim et al., 2013)
