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 Physostegia virginiana
Comment: G.Bentham, Edwards' Bot. Reg. 15: sub t. 1289 (1829), under his new genus Physostegia states that "This genus includes Dracocephalum virginianum Linn. ...". However, as Bentham did not definitely associate the genus name and specific epithet as required under ICN Art. 35.2 (Melbourne Code, 2012), the combination at specific rank was not made therein.
