Showing Pittosporum tinifolium
Pittosporaceae R.Br.
Pittosporum tinifolium A.Cunn. , legitimate, scientific
Cunningham, A. (September 1839), Florae insularum Novae Zelandiae precursor. Annals of Natural History 4: 109, adnot. BHL [tax. nov.]
  • Type: "In ora orientali inter tropicam: ad fluvium Endeavour dict., in locis saxosis humidis necnon ad ripas fluvii a littore remotis – 1819, A. Cunningham."
  • Comment: Cunningham gives the species epithet as linifolium but his description begins “foliis elliptico-oblongis…”. G.Bentham, Fl. Austral. 1: 112 (1863), indicated that the original spelling was a typographic error for tinifolium. The spelling used in Cunningham’s protologue is thus here corrected following Art. 60.1 (Shenzhen Code, 2018).

  • Comment: "First, the epithet linifolium needs correction. Bentham (1863: 112) states quite emphatically in his Flora Australiensis that the species name ‘linifolium’ was a printing error: ‘P. tinifolium (linifolium by an error of the press) A.Cunn. ...’. There is also no suggestion here by Bentham, nor in the (apparently error prone) protologue publication that the manuscript name should be attributed to Richard Cunningham, as cited by Chapman (1991), in the Australian Plant Name Index. Accordingly, this species should be cited as Pittosporum tinifolium A.Cunn.
