  • Comment on (A): Thymus serpyllum L., breckland thyme, Sand-Thymian

    Probably Thymus vulgaris L., common thyme, Echter Thymian as opposed to →wudu-cunelle.

    Pheifer (1974,76, note 246): "CEREFOLIUM 'chervil' [...] may have been confused with SERPYLLON". RUTA = Ruta graveolens L., common rue, Wein-Raute; I cannot explain this erroneous gloss.

    Etymology: L CUNILA.
