Group: Dicot Rank: genus Kind: Name of a new Taxon

Authors: Published In: Physicalische Beschreibung der Canarischen Inseln 148. 1825. (Phys. Beschr. Canar. Ins.) Name publication detail
Annotation: Nordenstam (2006) again elevated the section [DC.1838, Senecio section] to generic level, plus adding a new species, but coined the name Canariothamnus B. Nord., thinking Bethencourtia invalidly published (apparently because it was not accepted by Buch in the original work). A closer nomenclatural examination (Nordenstam in Greuter & Raab-Straube, 2006), however, revealed that Bethencourtia was, indeed, validly published because it was accepted by the describing author who was Choisy in Buch (1828), hence relegating the recent Canariothamnus to synonymy.
