Nomenclatural corrections to the taxonomic revision of The Old World species of Boehmeria (Urticaceae, tribus Boehmerieae) by Wilmot-Dear & Friis (2013)
This nomenclatural note, a sequel to a recently published taxonomic revision of the Old World species of the genus Boehmeria (Urticaceae), establishes: 1) a holotype of B. maugereti, synonym of taxon no. 8b in the revision (B. clidemioides var. diffusa); 2) B. zollingeriana Wedd. var. blinii (H.Lév.) C.J.Chen in Chen et al. (2003) as the correct name for the variety named in the revision as B. zollingeriana var. podocarpa in Chen et al. (2003); 3) that the combination B. spicata, based on Urtica spicata, is not illegitimate, as stated in the revision in synonymy of B. japonica and in an attached note; 4) a corrected synonymy for B. splitgerbera and the designation of a lectotype for Splitgerbera japonica and its nomenclatural synonyms; and 5) identifications of types for a number of excluded names: Boehmeria amaranthus, B. bodinieri, B. cavaleriei, B. martini and B. vanioiti.
