Australian Plant Name Index (APNI)
The Australian Plant Name Index (APNI) is a tool for the botanical community that deals with plant names and their usage in the scientific literature, whether as a current name or synonym. APNI does not recommend any particular taxonomy or nomenclature. For a listing of currently accepted scientific names for the Australian vascular flora, please use the Australian Plant Census (APC) link above.
APC Comment:Recorded by various authors (e.g. A.Gray, United States Expl. Exped. Phanerogamia 1: 109 (1854), F.M.Bailey, Compr. Cat. Queensland Pl. 4 (1913), W.M.Curtis, Stud. Fl. Tasmania 1: 62 (1956), W.M.Curtis & D.I.Morris, Stud. Fl. Tasmania, 2nd edn 1: 65 (1975)) either as accepted names or in synonymy of Tunica prolifera (L.) Scop., Kohlrauschia prolifera (L.) Kunth or Petrorhagia prolifer (L.) P.W.Ball & Heywood. Petrorhagia prolifer (and its nomenclatural synonyms) are now considered misapplications against Petrorhagia dubia (Raf.)
