Nomenclatural Comment
Pallas 1776 mentions (lists) Melilotus officinalis without referring to the basionym Trifolium officinalis L. or supplying any description. Lamarck 1779 didn’t cite Trifolium officinalis L. either, but supplied a detailed description. Following ICBN Art. 33.3 Lamarck's Melilotus officinalis is a legitimate comb. nov. (Lamarck mentions other Trifolium-Melilotus new combinations in his publication).
