About this book

Language: English

Volume 44(1) is the first part of the family Lamiaceae in the Flora of Pan-Himalaya. It includes eight subfamilies (Callicarpoideae, Symphorematoideae, Viticoideae, Tectonoideae Ajugoideae, Premnoideae, Peronematoideae, Scutellarioideae), 21 genera, and 136 species, among which two genera (Discretitheca and Holmskioldia) and 38 species are endemic to the Pan-Himalaya.

The nomenclatural novelties of the present book are two new species, two new names, one new combination and new status, 39 new synonyms. In addition, lectotypes are newly designated for 75 names

In the present account, the authors describe two new species, and make one new combination. There are two new names to replace the illegitimate names Teucrium aponiewm Willd. and Premna velutina C. Y. Wu respectively. In addition, they merge inostemon into ecri, and reduce 36 taxa as synonymy (eight in ajuga, five in Callicarpa, three in Caryopteris, three in Clerodendrum, eight in Premna, one in Pseudocaryopteris, one in Rotheca, three in Scutellaria, and four in Vitex). The authors also excluded records of six species in the Pan-Himalaya due to the misidentification by the authors of previous works. In the present volume, there are 328 scientific (specific and infraspecific) names, of which 100 are in need of lectotypes. Here, 75 of these names are lectotypified, but 25 names are left for further study.
