Australian Plant Name Index (APNI)
The Australian Plant Name Index (APNI) is a tool for the botanical community that deals with plant names and their usage in the scientific literature, whether as a current name or synonym. APNI does not recommend any particular taxonomy or nomenclature. For a listing of currently accepted scientific names for the Australian vascular flora, please use the Australian Plant Census (APC) link above.

Text:"Belcher (1996: 122) cites the type of the name Senecio leptocarpus as “Tasmania, Mt Wellington, Gunn 268. HOLOTYPUS: G-DC, on slip-tag: ‘268 …’” This is here treated as effective lectotypification by Belcher in accordance with ICN Art. 7.11 (Shenzhen Code, Turland & al., 2018). As Belcher’s citation meets the relevant requirements of ICN Art. 7.11, his use of the term “holotypus” is correctable under ICN Art. 9.10."
