Linnaean Name: Rhamnus zizyphus Linnaeus
Reference: Species Plantarum 1 : 194 (1753)
Provenance: "Habitat in Europa australi."
Type: Lectotype : Herb. Burser XXIII: 50 (UPS)
Designated by: Kirkbride & al. in Taxon 55 : 1050 (2006)
Current Name: Ziziphus jujuba Mill.
Current Family: Rhamnaceae
Comments: Kirkbride & al. typified this name as part of a successful proposal to conserve Zizyphus jujuba Mill. against Ziziphus zizyphus (L.) H. Karst., the latter otherwise being the little used, but correct, name for this taxon. See Brummitt (in Taxon 58: 283. 2009) for additional comments.
