Type Information
Type locality: "Habitat in littore Sussexiano; at Selsey-Island plentifully. Dr Dill[enius]. R. Syn. [Selsey, Sussex, England]; (Hudson 1762: 471) Notes: Selsey (meaning Seal Island) West Sussex was once an island. It is likely that the type was collected in the saltmarshes west of Selsey Bill by Dillenius. Dixon & Irvine (1982: 96) selected as "holotype" the illustration in Ray (1724: pl. 2: fig. 6) on the basis that Hudson based his description on Ray. The material upon which the illustration is based is in Dillenius's herbarium at OXF). Art 9.1 [Melbourne Code] specifies "A holotype of a name of a species or infraspecific taxon is the one specimen or illustration [prior to 2007] used by the author, or designated by the author as the nomenclatural type."
