Lectotypification of Stylosanthes hispida (Leguminosae) uri icon

abstract

  • Stylosanthes is a mainly New World genus comprising about 25 species but some of them are currently poorly defined. The genus is economically important, especially for low input agricultural production systems in the tropics and subtropics. During recent research on Stylosanthes taxonomy it became apparent that the species Stylosanthes hispida had never been formally typified. In order to foster taxonomic stability within the genus Stylosanthes, we here propose a lectotype for S. hispida. Additionally, some nomenclatural comments are provided.
