Linnaean Name: Sempervivum globiferum Linnaeus
Reference: Species Plantarum 1 : 464 (1753)
Provenance: "Habitat in Rutheno. D. Gmelin."
Type: Lectotype : Gerber, Herb. Linn. No. 632.1 (LINN)
Designated by: Letz & Marhold in Taxon 45 : 111 (1996)
Current Name: Jovibarba globifera (L.) J. Parn. ssp. globifera
Current Family: Crassulaceae
Comments: Muirhead (in Notes Roy. Bot. Gard. Edinburgh 26: 280. 1965) informally proposed that the name should be rejected on account of its usage for a large number of different species, and uncertainty as to its correct application. Tjaden (in Bull. Afr. Succ. Pl. Soc. 4: 40-43, 85-88, 124-125, 167-170. 1969; 5: 192-193. 1970) agreed but did not formally typify the name. Parnell & Faverger (in Bot. J. Linn. Soc. 103: 218. 1990) took the name up (in Jovibarba) in the sense of S. soboliferum J. Sims but the name was only formally typified by Letz & Marhold in 1996.
