  • Lectotype: "Kent Island [Tasmania] ‘& Hawkesbury’, R. Brown Iter Austral. 59 (lecto: BM 001044098*; possible isolecto: BM 001044100*, E 00208913*, K 001090029*, MEL 68065*,"
  • Text: "Bostock (in Bostock et al. 1998, p. 266) cited the type of the name Pteris falcata as ‘Port Jackson, [Sydney, New South Wales], R. Brown Iter Austral. 59; holo: ?BM n.v.; iso: MEL 672387’. This is here treated as effective lectotypification by Bostock, in accordance with ICN Art. 7.11 (Turland et al. 2018). Because Bostock’s citation meets the relevant requirements of ICN Art. 7.11, his use of the term ‘holo’ is correctable under ICN Art. 9.10."
