Abstract

The correct orthography of the specific epithet commemorating Hermann Sello in the genus Furcraea Vent. is discussed and clarified. It is shown that the epithet to be used is ‘selloana’, not ‘selloa’, nor ‘selloi’, yielding the species name Furcraea selloana K.Koch for this horticulturally popular New World member of the Asparagaceae subfam. Agavoideae / Agavaceae.
