Acacia glaucicaesia Domin, Biblioth. Bot. 89: 252 (1926)
Name Status. Accepted Name
Infra-generic Classification. Section Acacia (syn. Section Phyllodineae)
Notes. This species was originally published as Acacia glaucocaesia, but the epithet should be corrected to 'glaucicaesia', based on the following advice provided by Dr Alex George (pers. comm.): Art. 60.10 of the International Code of Nomenclature states that when combining two word elements (as here, glaucus and caesius), the case ending of the genitive singular of the first element is removed, giving glauc- and then, when the second element starts with a consonant, add a connecting vowel (-i- for Latin elements, -o- for Greek elements). It is presumed that Domin formed his epithet from Latin because glaucus is a classical Latin word, albeit originally derived from a Greek word, and caesius appears only in Latin. Therefore, the connecting vowel should be -i-, and the epithet glaucicaesia. .
