Abstract:

In the first edition of Baron Dumont de Courset's Le Botaniste Cultivateur, names were validly published for the Port Jackson Fig and the "Botany Bay oat" of the Sydney area, that of the fig at least antedating that in current use: it is proposed for rejection elsewhere in this issue (Mabberley & Dixon, 2004), though the identity of the "oat" is still unclear. By contrast, Tanacetum aucherianum (Compositae), apparently threatened by Chrysanthemum tanacetifolium Willd. (1803), is saved by the earlier but unlisted C. tanacetifolium (1802) of Dumont's book. The residue of other unlisted names in that work is disposed of, Dumont's use of Cels' binomials leading to a proposal elsewhere in this issue (Mabberley, 2004) to reject an earlier name for Fraxinus quadrangulata (Oleaceae) and consideration of a number of names in Ribes (Grossulariaceae). There remain unresolved issues in Anacampseros (Portulacaceae) and Bejaria (Ericaceae), while there are unplaced names in Cape Erica (Ericaceae), Gnidia (Thymelaeacea ), and Pelargonium (Geraniaceae). Preliminary bibliographic findings on H. C. Andrews' Geraniums (1805 [-25]) are presented in an appendix.
