Abstract:

The typification of the Linnaean name Crocus sativus var. vernus is discussed. A lectotype is designated from the Burser Herbarium at UPS. Due to changes in taxonomy and this lectotypification, it has not been possible to maintain the present strict usage of the name. Crocus vernus (L.) Hill should correctly be applied to the plants previously known as C. vernus subsp. albiflorus (Kit.) Ces. (≡ C. albiflorus Kit.). The next available name for the species to which the name C. vernus subsp. vernus has been misapplied is C. neapolitanus (Ker Gawl.) Loisel.
