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 Ajuga grandiflora
Type: "Our plate represents the same large-flowered bugle raised in the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew from seed collected in 1928 at Broken Hill (20 miles due north of Haysdale) in western New South Wales, by Dr. R.H. Pulleine of Adelaide."
Comment: ' ... robust variant may correspond to A. grandiflora Stapf, but without a review of the species from across its entire range, the use of this name should be discouraged'.
APC Comment: A name of uncertain placement, but possibly referable to Ajuga australis s.lat. (see B.J.Conn in N.G.Walsh & T.J.Entwisle (eds), Fl. Vic. 4: 456 (1999)).
