  [Aroid-l] My message from Dr. Moran regarding Huperzia phlegmaria
From: Steve at ExoticRainforest.com (ExoticRainforest) on 2008.06.04 at 18:05:13(17735)
This message just came back from Dr. Moran,

Dear Steve,

You are correct: the basionym is Lycopodium nummulariifolium Blume. I suggest using Huperzia because that is being done by most pteridologists these days. Huperzia differs from the other Lycopodium segregates most conspicuously by its equally forked branches.

Best wishes,

So it would appear that to science, the correct basionym (base name) is Lycopodium nummulariifolium Blume.
