Canavalia DC. , nom. cons., scientific
Adanson, M. (1763), Familles des Plantes 2: 325 [tax. nov.]
  • Type: Canavalia ensiformis (L.) DC.
  • Comment: nom. et orth. cons. vs CANAVALI Adanson (1763) (nom. rej.) (ref. I.C.B.N. (1983) No. 3891). Orthography corrected by A.P. de Candolle, Prodr. 2 (mid Nov. 1825) 403 which is the reference given for the conservation of the genus in the I.C.B.N. – however, although de Candolle's orthography is conserved, the name should be given without change of author i.e. Adanson. See, however, the paper by P.G.Parkinson, Taxon 36 (1987) 81–83 where it is stated that Adanson's names are invalid as he followed a mononomial form of nomenclature, and that consequently conservation is unnecessary.
