Abstract

In 1856 John Lindley made the first description of the firecracker flower, Rhytidea bicolor (now known as Dichelostemma ida-maia), naming a William Lobb collection exhibited in London. This binomial, despite its obvious priority, was proposed to be relegated to synonymy in Taxon, and is discussed here further.
