Abstract

A history is presented of the use and misuse of the binomials, Rumex maritimus and R. persicarioides. In light of single-character separation of the taxa, an alternative to current taxonomic usage is proposed. This treatment recognizes one species (R. maritimus, by prior choice) with two New World varieties. One change in status is made.
