Lectotypification of seven taxon names in Eryngium L. (Apiaceae-Saniculoideae)
Abstract:Seven names of taxa of the genus Eryngium L. (Eryngium amethystinum var. tenuifolium Boiss. & Heldr., Eryngium argyreum Maire, Eryngium atlanticum Batt. & Pit., Eryngium bourgatii var. atlanticum Ball, Eryngium carthamoides Sm., Eryngium marocanum Pit., Eryngium paniculatum Cav. & Dombey ex F. Delaroche) have been lectotypified in order to stabilize the names, and the holotype of E. falcatum Delaroche was detected. E. carthamoides Sm. in Rees was determined to be a synonym of E. aquifolium Cav. The lectotypification of E. paniculatum Cav. & Dombey ex F. Delaroche should contribute towards a resolution of the name's confusing nomenclature past.
