Revised lectotypification of Lycopodium complanatum L. (Lycopodiaceae)
Abstract:The currently accepted lectotype of the circumboreal species Lycopodium complanatum L., or Diphasiastrum complanatum (L.) Holub, is a specimen of the related species L. tristachyum Pursh, or D. tristachyum (Pursh) Holub, mainly distributed in eastern North America and Europe. This lectotype, in LINN, is here superseded in favour of an alternative original element in the Celsius herbarium in Uppsala, supported by an epitype, on the grounds of serious conflict with the protologue. Thereby the traditional usage of the well-known name L. complanatum can be maintained.
