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.

Type:"lieux inonde a Kanala [inundated places in Kanala], New
Caledonia, 1855–1860, Vieillard 1698 (lecto: P 00636716!; isolecto: BR 0013306007*, K 001092629*, P 00636714!, P 00636715!, S S-P-17878*, US 00048793!"
Text:"Tindale (1956) cited the type of the name Marsilea mutica as ‘holotype: lieux inondé à Kanala, New Caledonia, Viellard No. 1698, 1855-60 (P.), also 2 isotypes (P.)’. This is here treated as effective lectotypification by Tindale, in accordance with ICN Art. 7.11 (Turland et al. 2018). Because Tindale’s citation meets the relevant requirements of ICN Art. 7.11, her use of the term ‘holotype’ is correctable under ICN Art. 9.10."
