  • Text: "Martius (1829) [Hortus Regius Monacensis: 188, 206] published the name Racosperma giving a direct reference to the description of Acacia section Phyllodineae DC. However, Racosperma cannot be considered to have been validly published at that time as he treated it as part of the genus Acacia. Species referred to it were listed in alphabetical order under Acacia. Later (Martius, 1835) [Hortus Regius Monacensis Seminifer: unnumbered page] it was definitely accepted but without description or diagnosis. The citation of 'Racosperma Mart.'. correctly placed in an alphabetical list of genera, includes an indirect reference to the name (and its reference to a diagnosis) published in 1829. Combinations under Racosperma therefore date from 1835."
