Linnaean Name: Salvia nemorosa Linnaeus
Reference: Species Plantarum, ed. 2, 1 : 35 (1762)
Provenance: "Habitat in Austria, Tataria."
Type: Lectotype : Gerber, Herb. Linn. No. 42.14 (LINN)
Designated by: Hedge in Notes Roy. Bot. Gard. Edinburgh 23 : 565 (1961)
Current Name: Salvia nemorosa L.
Current Family: Lamiaceae
Comments: López González (in Anales Jard. Bot. Madrid 37: 207. 1980), presumably in ignorance of Hedge's typifications, argued that this and S. sylvestris L. (1753) are homotypic, based on 42.14 (LINN). However, Hedge's type choices for these names have priority.
