Qiongzhuea and Dendrocalamopsis (Poaceae-Bambusoideae): publication by descriptio generico-specifico and typification
Abstract:Qiongzhuea and its species have received considerable attention concerning the validity of publication of names in different publications. However, it has apparently not been appreciated that both Qiongzhuea and a further bamboo genus, Dendrocalamopsis, were validly published by descriptio generico-specifico. Consequently they were validly published at an earlier date, with different types, than has been generally understood. The correct place of publication, authorship and typification is given and discussed for both genera, and a new section name, Chimonobambusa sect. Neoqiongzhuea, is published for those species of that genus with greatly swollen nodes.
