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.
Lectotype:"[here corrected], designated by Bean 2008: 233 [i.e. A.R.Bean, Telopea 12(2): 233 (2008)]): AUSTRALIA. Northern Territory, Carpentaria Island ‘s’, 20–21 January 1803, Bennett 3055 (BM000907281 [Digital image!], image of the lectotype available at http:// data.nhm.ac.uk/dataset/collection-specimens/resource/05ff2255-c38a-40c9-b657-4ccb55ab2feb/record 2328744)."
Text:"Bean (2008: 233 [i.e. A.R.Bean, Telopea 12(2): 233 (2008)]) indicated for Ptilotus corymbosus a specimen preserved at BM (barcode BM000907281) as the holotype, while another one specimen [at K, barcode K000196973, image at http://apps.kew.org/herbcat getImage. do?imageBarcode=K000196972 (specimen on the left)] was reported as isotype. However, Brown (1810: 415 [i.e. R.Brown, Prodr. 415 (1810)]) did not specify any holotype in the protologue. According to the Art. 9.9 (see Ex. 10) [i.e. ICN Art. 9.9, Ex. 10 (Melbourne Code, 2012)]., the Bean’s choice and use holotype is an error to be corrected as lectotype."
