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 Cereus uruguayanus
APC Comment: When publishing the name of this species Kiesing cited the invalid Piptanthocereus uruguayanus Ritter as basionym. Under Art. 46 Note 2 and Ex. 22 Ritter's name is thus not to be included in the authority. Both Ritter and Kiesing used the spelling "uruguayanus", which was later wrongly "corrected" to "uruguayensis".
