Abstract:

The name Zizania terrestris L. (≡ Scleria terrestris (L.) Fass.) was apparently based solely on a plate in Rheede's Hortus Malabaricus labelled "Katou Tsjolam", a Malayalam dialect name for the plant figured. As the plate shows characters of two different taxa, an epitype of Scleria terrestris is designated here to fix the current usage of the name.
