Taxonomic identity of Gang-hwa-yak-ssuk
Myung Soon Park, Bo Mi Nam, Gyu Young Chung
Aiming to determine the taxonomic identity of Gang-hwa-yak-ssuk as a cultivated plant, this study analyzes ITS sequences and compares their external morphologies with the genus Artemisia, which have a similar external morphology. Thus far, we have considered A. indica as the original plant of Gang-hwa-yak-ssuk, but Gang-hwa-yak-ssuk is better grouped with A. argyi, not A. indica, for the following reasons: Gang-hwa-yakssuk has the same characteristics as A. argyi in terms of the natural habitat, in that it is 1-bipinnately cleft or parted in the external morphology of its leaves, and because the white glandular trichome is distributed on the adaxial surface. This is in addition to the result of ITS sequence analysis. Therefore, we can define Gang-hwayak-ssuk as a cultivated plant that originates from A. argyi and not A. indica.
KeyWords: Artemisia argyi, A. indica, taxonomic identity
