Hi to all

I have a problem with the name of a vascular plant: Sedum cruciatum Desf. (Tabl. Ecol. bot.: 162, 1804. See BHL at: http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/item/48715#page/174/mode/1up<http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/item/48715>). This name could be a "nomen subnudum" or a "nomen nudum". The only info given are:

- Sedum cruciatum. [Latin name].

- Sédum à feuill. en croix. [French name]

- Perennial [Jupiter symbol]

This name was subsequently published (in the right way) by DC. in the 1805.

Is this name validly published under the Code or not ?

The literature on this topic doesn't seem provide a univocal answer.

Thanks for the help

Lorenzo Gallo
