Abstract:

The widely used name Frangula alnus (syn. Rhamnus frangula) has in recent years been threatened by F. dodonei, an allegedly older name said to be published in a rare work by Pietro Arduino. However, from the context of Arduino's paper it is clear that “F. dodonei” is not a binomial; it just happens to look like one, and has no nomenclatural status.
