LECTOTYPE: Figure 373, Tabula 289 (pp 384-387) in Dillenius, J.J. (1732), Plantarum Rariorum Horti Elthamensis, Vol. 2. Croizat (1945) attributes this to H. Crantz (1766) Inst. Rei Herb. 2: 455, but Linnean Typification Project states that the type is not designated yet. Does Croizat's article in Amer. Mid. Nat. 33: 235. 1945 qualify as lectotypification?
