Botanical eponymiesEdit

I would like to explain the changes I made to some of your articles years ago by using one example. The ten species of plants that you had claimed to have been named for Lawrence William Nuttall were all named for Thomas Nuttall. Here is the evidence: The basionym of Aletes nuttallii (A.Gray) W.A.Weber is Seseli nuttallii A.Gray, published in 1870. Some sites do not list Seseli nuttallii as basionym, perhaps because Weber cited it as Seseli nuttallii A.Gray “in part” without specifying whether that “part” included the type specimen. Bigelowia nuttallii L.C.Anderson was published as a new name for plants previously misidentified as Bigelowia nudata (Nutt.) DC.: L. C. Anderson wrote: “This is the plant which has long been known as Bigelowia nudata (Nutt.) DC. (or synonyms). The type locality of Chrysocoma virgata Nuttall however was New Jersey, far outside the range of the present species, but near the near limits of B. nudata subsp. nudata. A Nuttall collection (PH!; BM. photograph at KSC) labeled "Chrysocoma virgata, New Jersey" presumably is the type material.” Townsendia nuttallii Dorn: The original publication in which the species appeared is rare and I have not seen it myself, but the author (Dorn) stated in the Feb. 1987 newsletter of the Wyoming Native Plant Society, that he had named it for Thomas Nuttall. The basionym of Tiquilia nuttallii (Benth.) A.T.Richardson is Coldenia nuttallii Benth. in Hooker (in 1851 – before the birth of LWN). Bentham cited the specimen, collected by Thomas Nuttall and an unpublished synonym Tiquilia parvifolia Nutt. The basionym of Boechera nuttallii (Kuntze) Dorn is Erysimum nuttallii Kuntze (1891) which was a replacement for the illegitimate Arabis spathulata Nutt. (1838) blocked by Arabis spathulata DC. (1824.) The basionym of Minuopsis nuttallii (Pax) W.A.Weber is Arena nuttallii Pax (1893), which replaced the illegitimate Arenaria pungens Nutt. in Torr. & A.Gray (1838) which was blocked by the earlier Arenaria pungens Clem. (1816) The basionym of Desmodium nuttallii (Schindl.) B.G.Schub. is Meibomia Nuttaliii Schindl. (1927), which replaced the illegitimate Hedysarum canescens Nutt. ex Torr. & A. Gray (1838), which is blocked by the earlier Hedysarum canescens L., and several other homonyms. Rhexia nuttallii C.W.James (1956) replaced the illegitimate Rhexia serrulata Nutt. (1818) which was blocked by the earlier Rhexia serrulata Rich. (1813) Eriogonum nuttallii Gambel ex Nutt. (1848 – before the birth of LWN) replaced the illegitimate Eriogonum tenellum Nutt. (1848), which is blocked by the earlier Eriogonum tenellum Torr. (1827). Thomas Nuttall was also the collector of the type specimen. Agalinis nuttallii Shinners (1962) replaced the illegitimate Gerardia longifolia Nutt. (1837) which is blocked by the earlier Gerardia longifolia Raf. (1836) There are five species of fungi and two of vascular plants which have been named for Lawrence Nuttall. All but one are listed on page 44 of Weldon Boone’s A History of Botany in West Virginia (McClain Print Company, 1965). They are: Hypoxylon nuttallii Ellis & Everh., Proc. Acad. nat. Sci. Philad. 46: 346 (1894) – the type was collected by LW Nuttall at Glade Creek, West Virginia in 1894. Hydnellum nuttallii Banker, Mem. Torrey bot. Club 12: 155 (1906) [synonym Hydnum nuttallii (Banker) Sacc. & Trotter, Syll. fung. (Abellini) 21: 371 (1912)] (not mentioned by Boone) – the type was collected by LW Nuttall in West Virginia in 1896. Helotiella nuttallii Ellis & Everh., Proc. Acad. nat. Sci. Philad. 46: 351 (1894) [synonym Helotiella trabinelloides var. nuttallii (Ellis & Everh.) Rehm, Annls mycol. 2(1): 36 (1904] – the type was collected by LW Nuttall in West Virginia in 1894. Phyllachora nuttalliana Fairm., in Millspaugh & Nuttall, Publications of the Field Museum of Natural History, Botany Series 5: 345 (1923) – the type was collected by LW Nuttall on Santa Catalina Island in 1920. Lecidea nuttallii Calk. & Nyl., Bot. Gaz. 22: 334 (1896) [synonym Buelliella nuttallii (Calk. & Nyl.) Fink, Lich. Fl. U.S.: 373 (1935)] the type was collected by LW Nuttall near Nuttallburg, West Virginia. Jepsonia neonuttalliana Millsp. -- Publ. Field Mus. Nat. Hist., Bot. Ser. 5: 124. 1923 – The type was collected by LW Nuttall on Santa Catalina Island in 1920. Anychia nuttallii Small Torreya 25(3): 60–61. 1925 [synonym Paronychia fastigiata var. nuttallii (Small) Fernald Rhodora 38(456): 421. 1936.] The type was collected by LW Nuttall in Pennsylvania in 1924.
