The original lectotype for the name Cuscuta europaea var. epithymum L. was based on a specimen from LINN that is not original material. The sole extant original element for the name is deposited in the Burser herbarium in UPS. The previous lectotype is here superseded with the designation of the Burser specimen. Comments on the valid publication of the combination C. epithymum (L.) L. are also included.
