TitleDryobalanops sumatrensis, comb. nov., the correct name for Dryobalanops aromatica
JournalBlumea - Biodiversity, Evolution and Biogeography of Plants
AbstractIn my Bibliographia Lauracearum (1964) I noted that Arbor camphorifera barosiensis sylv. Valentijn (p. 99), Arbor camphorifera sumatrana, etc., Breyn. (p. 100), Camphora malaiensis Wittstein (p. 194), Camphora sumatrensis W. ten Rhijne ex Breyn. (p. 198), Lauras foliis ovalibus acuminatis, etc., Houttuyn (p. 624) and Laurus sumatrensis J.F. Gmelin (p. 708), represented the well known timber tree Dryobalanops aromatica Gaertn. f.
Of these names, Laurus sumatrensis J.F.Gmelin, Syst. Veg. 650 (1791 & 1796), is validly published and takes priority over Gaertner’s name (1805).
