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.
Showing Asplenium brisbaneense
Type: "Am Brisbane River in Queensland, Australien (AMALIE DIETRICH)."
Text: "... not an Australian plant. ...seems probable that the specimens were not in fact collected by Amalie Dietrich in Queensland and have at some time been mislabelled."
Text: "The type specimen is not an Australian species. It appears similar to the Malesian A. vulcanicum Blume, and may have originated from the Caroline Is. (P.S.Green, Kew Bull. 43: 652, 1988). The stated locality for the specimen is almost certainly incorrect."
APC Comment: A name of uncertain application, possibly referable to Asplenium vulcanicum Blume (see P.J.Brownsey in A.E.Orchard (ed.), Fl. Australia 48: 323 (1998)).
