Lectotypification of Linnaean names in the Italian endemic flora
Abstract:The typification of four Linnaean names (Asperula crassifolia L., Hesperis dentata L., Pancratium illyricum L., Scrophularia trifoliata L.), applicable to species endemic to the Italian flora, is discussed. Specimens from L (Herb. Van Royen) and LINN (Herb. Linnaeus) are designated as lectotypes. For Asperula crassifolia, an interpretative epitype is also designated, which coincides with the lectotype (also proposed here) of A. tomentosa Ten.
