Typification of Juncus mutabilis Lam.
Abstract:The protologue of the name Juncus mutabilis Lam. 1789 is analysed. Among twelve elements analysed (six specimens, six figures), ten represent original material from which a lectotype might be chosen. This material belongs to at least three taxa, Juncus capitatus, J. pygmaeus and J. bulbosus. A specimen deposited in P-LAM belonging to Juncus capitatus is selected as the lectotype, thus avoiding any changes of name.
