  • Comment: Although Chinnock attributes lectotypification of this name to C.R.Marsden, the thesis in which the designation first appeared was not effectively published under ICN Art. 30.9 (Shenzhen Code, 2018). Chinnock's designation is here considered to constitute effective lectotypification under ICN Art. 7.11 (Shenzhen Code, 2018).

  • Text: "Chinnock (1998b, p. 65) cited the type of the name Isoëtes elatior as ‘South Esk River, Tas., ?Dec. 1848, C.Stuart 461; lecto: MEL 1002781, fide C. R. Marsden, Morphology & Taxonomy of Isoetes, PhD thesis, University of Adelaide 105 (1979); isolecto: MEL 31642’. Because Marsden’s thesis was not effectively published under ICN Art. 30.9, this citation is here treated as effective lectotypification by Chinnock (1998b), in accordance with ICN Art. 7.11 (Turland et al. 2018)."
