Australian Plant Name Index (APNI)
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.
Comment:Reference to the basionym is indirect, via citation of Ptilotus psilotrichoides F.Muell., nom. illeg. Although G.Benl., Mitt. Bot. Staatssamml. Munch. 7: 1 (1970) indicated that the combination was not validly made until 1933, Gardner's combination is here regarded as validly published under ICN Art. 41.3 (Melbourne Code, 2012).
