Abstract:

The existence of the type material indicated in the protologues of all Indian Curcuma species names is confirmed or excluded following visits to numerous herbaria. Lectotypes, neotypes and epitypes are designated for previously untypified names or names for which the holotype is missing. Earlier ineffective or superfluous typifications are discussed, several new synonyms are recognised and notes on critical taxa are provided.
