Nomenclatural Notes

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


Although this name might be considered to be based on Salix acuminata Mill., Gard. Dict., ed. 8. n. 14. 1768 [ = S.cinerea L.], Rafinesque did not refer to Miller. Thus, the existence of a later homonym, S. acuminata Thuill., Fl. Env. Paris, ed. 2: 518. 1799, nom. illeg., precludes treating Rafinesque's action as being an indirect reference to Miller.
