Rhizocaulites, a new name for Rhizocaulon R. C. Mehrotra (2000), non Rhizocaulon Saporta (1861)
Abstract:Rhizocaulon R. C. Mehrotra (fossil ?Araceae) is a later homonym of Rhizocaulon Saporta (fossil ?Poaceae) published in 1861 and is, therefore, illegitimate. A new generic name Rhizocaulites is proposed here as a replacement.
