Presidential Decree 67/81
Contrary to what has been accepted in Euro+Med (2006‒) based on Pedersen & Faurholdt (2007), O. holoserica is the correct name for what has been called O. fuciflora in previous floristic literature (see Greuter 2008 and Appendix II for details). Orthography of the epithet follows Cribb & Wood (1981), Willing & Willing (1988) and Buttler & al. (2015); see also IPNI (2012‒) which makes Greuter’s (l.c.) etymological and quantitative arguments in favour of the spelling “holosericea” obsolete.
