  • Text: "Most recent scientific papers incorrectly assign the authorship of A. asparagoides to W. Wight. The correct authorship is A. asparagoides (L.) Druce, as W. Wight, a contributor to the 1909 Century Dictionary and Cyclopaedia, lists A. asparagoides under the genus Myrsiphyllum in the context of the treatment by Baker (1875), where A. asparagoides is in the sub-genus of Myrsiphyllum (Willd.) Baker. Druce (1914) made the first new combination of A. asparagoides, based on Medeola asparagoides from Linnaeus (1753)."
  • Comment: Batchelor & Scott indicate that the publication of the name Asparagus asparagoides by W.Wight, Century Dictionary & Cyclopaedia 12: 845 (1909), was "under the genus Myrsiphyllum". While Wight's name appears in a dictionary entry for Myrsiphyllum the entry indicates that Myrsiphyllum is "a section of the genus Asparagus". Therefore the publication of the name Asparagus asparagoides by Druce in 1914 is here considered to be an isonym without nomenclatural status.
