Oxybasis chenopodioides (L.) S. Fuentes, Uotila & Borsch[HC2]

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: The Linnaean basionym was neotypified (Uotila 2001).

FNA4: "The name Chenopodium botryodes Smith was sometimes applied to C. chenopodioides because of uncertainty about the proper application and typification of the name Blitum chenopodioides Linnaeus. The recent publication by P. Uotila (2001) provides a reasonable solution by maintaining the traditional usage through neotypification of the Linnaean name."
