Glossary Term: Basionym

The legitimate, previously published name on which a new combination or name at new rank is based. The basionym does not itself have a basionym; it provides the final epithet, name, or stem of the new combination or name at new rank (ICN Art. 6.10) (see also name at new rank, new combination).
