Nomenclatural Notes

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


Although this name might be considered a new name for Salix aquatica Sm., Engl. Bot. 20: ad t. 1437. 1805, nom. illeg. [ = Salix cinerea L.], non S. aquatica Lam., Fl. Franç. 2: 231. 1779 [ = Salix caprea L.], Rafinesque did not refer to Smith. Thus, the existence of a later homonym precludes treating Rafinesque's action as being an indirect reference to Smith.
