Showing Eremophila christophori
Scrophulariaceae Juss.
Eremophila christophori F.Muell. , legitimate, scientific
Mueller, F.J.H. von (1875), Fragmenta Phytographiae Australiae 9(77): 120 BHL [tax. nov.]
  • Type: "Inter tractum elatum Macdonnell's Range et oasim Lady Charlotte's Waters; Christoph. Giles."
  • Etymology: (not specified.) [but presumably named for the collector of the type material, Christopher Giles (c. 1841–1917)]
  • Comment: Mueller's spelling of the species epithet as christophori is here treated as resulting from an intentional latinisation (to Christophorus) of the first name of the collector of the type material . It is thus to be preserved under ICN Art. 60.7 (Melbourne Code, 2012) and is not correctable to christopheri.
