Link to protologue:
  • • neither Turczaninow nor Ledebour (Fl. ross. 4(1):179. 1852) validly published this name, since both recognized it as as synonym of A. flavidum (Shenzhen ICN Art. 36.1)
  • • Vvedensky (F USSR) inadvertently validated A. leucocephalum as an illegitimate, superfluous name (Shenzhen ICN Art. 52)
Name Verified on: 08-Jun-2009 by ARS Systematic Botanists.
