The typification of the Linnaean name Atriplex maritima (Chenopodiaceae) revisited
Keywords:Atriplex laciniata, lectotypification, Linnean name, nomenclature
The typification of the Linnaean name Atriplex maritima is revisited according to the Art. 7.8 (Ex. 10) of ICN. A specimen deposited at BM (barcode BM001148306), which is part of the Dale’s collection, is designated as the lectotype superseding the previous proposed neotypification on BM000647540 (Clifford Herbarium). The correct name for this taxon remains A. laciniata L. with A. maritima accepted as heterotypic synonym.
