Linnaean Name: Convallaria racemosa Linnaeus
Reference: Species Plantarum 1 : 315 (1753)
Provenance: "Habitat in Virginia, Canada."
Type: Lectotype : Herb. Clifford: 125, Convallaria 4, sheet B (BM-000558522)
Designated by: LaFrankie in J. Arnold Arbor. 67 : 421 (1986)
Current Name: Maianthemum racemosum (L.) Link
Current Family: Liliaceae/Convallariaceae
Comments: See detailed discussion by Fernald (in Rhodora 40: 406. 1938) who treated the two Clifford sheets as the type (though as they are evidently not part of a single gathering, Art. 9.15 does not apply). LaFrankie effectively restricted this to sheet B, figured by Fernald as pl. 512.
