South American Oxalis name changes
Tue, 14 Aug 2007 03:00:15 PDT
For those interested in South American Oxalis, the RHS Advisory Panel on
Nomenclature & Taxonomy (APONAT) recently reviewed Lourteig's revision
of the genus in Bradea 7 (2000) to see what name changes should be
applied to the RHS Plant Finder.  A number of name changes for
cultivated taxa were noted and these can be found in the minutes of 14
June 2007 at…
The most relevant one is the correction to the priority of the name
Oxalis perdicaria for O. lobata.
