  • Lectotype: "Port Jackson, 1802–1805, R.Brown Iter Austral. 51 (lecto, designated here: K 001057881*; possible isolecto: LE 00008643*, E 00205066*, K 001057880*, MEL 672393*, MEL 672394*)."
  • Lectotype: "Kramer and McCarthy (1998b, p. 247) listed the ‘holotype’ of Pteris umbrosa as R.Brown Iter Austral. 57. I consider this to be a misreading of R.Brown Iter Austral. 51, of which four sheets are known, two of which are in K. The most complete of the K sheets is here selected as the lectotype."
