Validations of the names of seven Podocarpaceae macrofossils
Abstract:Seven names of macrofossil taxa belonging to Podocarpaceae are here validated; they were all previously published but not validly so under the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature. The names apply to species in the genera Acmopyle Pilg. [A. setiger (Townrow) R. S. Hill & R. J. Carp. ex R. R. Mill & R. S. Hill], Dacrycarpus (Endl.) de Laub. [D. praecupressinus (Ettingsh.) D. R. Greenw. ex R. R. Mill & R. S. Hill], Falcatifolium de Laub. [F. eocenicum (D. R. Greenw.) R. S. Hill & L. J. Scriven ex R. R. Mill & R. S. Hill], Prumnopitys Phil. [P. tasmanica (Townrow) D. R. Greenw. ex R. R. Mill & R. S. Hill], Sigmaphyllum R. S. Hill & L. J. Scriven [S. australe (D. R. Greenw.) R. S. Hill & L. J. Scriven ex R. R. Mill & R. S. Hill], Smithtonia R. S. Hill & M. Pole [S. lanceolata (D. R. Greenw.) R. S. Hill & M. Pole ex R. R. Mill & R. S. Hill] and Willungia R. S. Hill & M. Pole [W. maslinensis (D. T. Blackburn) R. S. Hill & M. Pole ex R. R. Mill & R. S. Hill]. All these combinations were originally published without exact basionym references; instead, the authors cited the complete pagination of the paper in which the intended basionym was made.
