FoC has Leucas zeylanica (L.) R. Br. but these illustrations are of Leucas zeylanica (L.) Aiton f. – http://plantillustrations.org/species.php?id_species=600245
Both of the above synonymous?
Correct citation is Leucas zeylanica (L.) Aiton f., Hortus kew. ed. 2, 3:409. 1811 (R. Brown, Prodr. 504. 1810, nom. inval.) as per GRIN (updated in 2014) with comments as below:
Thanks … I am not sure whom to follow, TPL, GRIN or IPNI.
IPNI lists it as L. zeylanica (L.) R.Br. …. also noted, as GRIN, “Remarks: Index Kewensis gives R.Brown, Prodr. (1810) 504, but although the combination is indicated by Brown, it is not validly made.”
