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 Leucopogon gnidium
Comment: This name is included in what is ostensibly a reprinting of a paper published anonymously in the Hobart Town Almanack (1835). However, in the earlier paper the name given is Leucopogon lanceolatus (as "lanceolatum"), itself an illegitimate and superfluous name due to the inclusion of Styphelia gnidium Vent. in synonymy. This is here considered to constitute an indirect reference to the basionym under ICN Art. 41.3 (Shenzhen Code, 2018) and authorship of the new combination is attributed to Hooker, as editor of the current work.
APC Comment: A name of uncertain application.
