Typification of Bambusa bambos (L.) Voss (Gramineae: Bambusoideae) [link]Website  abstract   bibtex   
The specimens and literature relating to the first validly published bamboo name, Arundo bambos L. are discussed. A previously overlooked specimen collected by Hermann in Sri Lanka, and used by Linnaeus for his Flora Zeylanica, is selected as the lectotype. This specimen is clearly the common thorny bamboo of India, which had conventionally been known as Bambusa arundinacea (Retz.) Willd., or more recently as Bambusa bambos (L.) Voss. Bambusa arundinacea was apparently described from a mixed collection, and it is lectotypified to maintain conventional application of the names of the components, Bambusa arundinacea and Bambusa vulgaris Schrad. ex Wendl. Bambusa bambos (L.) Voss takes priority over the taxonomic synonym Bambusa arundinacea (Retz.) Willd. and is the correct name to use, although Bambusa arundinacea remains the name representative of the type of the conserved genus Bambusa.
