Linnaean Name: Scabiosa ochroleuca Linnaeus
Reference: Species Plantarum 1 : 101 (1753)
Provenance: "Habitat in Germaniae pratis siccis."
Type: Type not designated.
Current Name: Scabiosa columbaria L. ssp. ochroleuca (L.) Celak.
Current Family: Dipsacaceae
Comments: Devesa (in Lagascalia 12: 165. 1984) wrongly indicated 120.28 (LINN) as lectotype but this collection lacks the relevant Species Plantarum number (i.e. "17") and was a post-1753 addition to the herbarium, and is not original material for the name.
