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:Schultes ascribes this name to "Juss.". While A.L. de Jussieu, Annales du Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle 2: 131 (1803), indicated his belief that Illecebrum lanatum (Burm.f.) Murray should be placed in the genus Aerva he did not definitely associate the genus name with the specific epithet as required by ICN Art. 35.2 (Melbourne Code, 2012).
