  • Comment: In the preface to volume 1 of Hortus Kewensis (1789), Aiton acknowledges "communications" of unpublished work sent to him by L'Héritier (p. vi) and cites several of these (p. xxi) in a list of "Books Quoted". This, combined with Aiton's citation of "L'Herit. n. 26" following the description, is here considered to constitute ascription of this new combination to L'Héritier by Aiton under ICN Art. 46.2 (Shenzhen Code, 2018).
