Nomenclatural Notes

Status: nom. illeg. nom. superfl.


M.R. Almeida & S.M. Almeida intended H. schulli as a new combination based on Bahel schulli Buch.-Ham., Trans. Linn. Soc. London 14:289. 1825. and referred toBarleria longifolia L., Amoen. Acad. 4: 320. 1759, Barleria auriculata Schumach., Beskr. Guin. Pl. 285. 1827, and Hygrophila auriculata (Schumach.) Heine, Kew Bull. 16: 172. 1962. as synonyms. Unfortunately, the status of B. schulli has been in dispute (invalid or illegitimate), and either way, it cannot serve as a basionym. Therefore, H. schulli was superfluous and illegitimate, when published.
