Showing Scaevola taccada
Goodeniaceae R.Br.
Scaevola taccada (Gaertn.) Roxb. , legitimate, scientific
Roxburgh, W. (1814), Hortus Bengalensis: 15 [comb. nov.]
basionym: Lobelia taccada Gaertn. legitimate
  • Comment: Although Roxburgh did not refer to the basionym (Lobelia taccada Gaertn. (1788)) and did not provide a description for L. taccada, he cited a reference to an effectively published description and illustration: "H. M. 4. t. 59" (i.e. Rheede, Hort. Malab. 4: 121, t. 59 (1683)). Gaertner also referred to Rheede. Therefore, S. taccada is validly published as a comb. nov. (ICN Art. 41.3, Melbourne Code (2012)).
