Typification of Sphaerocarpos michelii Bellardi, S. terrestris Sm. and Targionia sphaerocarpos Dicks. (Marchantiophyta, Sphaerocarpaceae)
Abstract:Plate 3 (lower) in Micheli's Nova Plantarum Genera is selected as lectotype for the names Sphaerocarpos michelii Bellardi, S. terrestris Sm. and Targionia sphaerocarpos Dicks. Because no other original material could be traced and as Micheli's illustration is demonstrably ambiguous and cannot be critically identified for purposes of the precise application of the name (Art. 9.7) an epitype has been designated from Northern Italy. Spores of the epitype are illustrated.
