Nomenclature of the Drosera anglica complex revisited
Carniv. Pl. Newslett. 39(2):46
Published June 2010
As noted before (Carniv. Pl. Newslett. 37:118-119, 2008), there can be only one legitimate name for all hybrids (including hybridogenic stabilized segregates) between two taxa at the rank that distinguishes the two parent taxa. In the case of Drosera linearis and D. rotundifolia as the parents (which are distinguished at species rank), this name is D. anglica. This has led to the relegation of the back-cross that has been known for a long time at the illegitimate rank of species (as D. 3 obovata) to a variety of D. anglica.
