Erythrina crista-galli Linnaeus  , Systema Naturae, ed. 12, 2: 473; Mantissa Plantarum: 99. 1767.

"Habitat in Brasilia. D. Vandelli." RCN: 5178.

Lectotype (Howard, Fl. Lesser Antilles 4: 488. 1988): Vandelli s.n., Herb. Linn. No. 888.4 ( LINN)  , see p. 234.

Current name: Erythrina crista-galli L.  ( Fabaceae  : Faboideae  ).

Note: Krukoff (in Phytologia 22: 250. 1971) noted seeing 888.5 (LINN) and added "it is clear that this name is correctly interpreted" but this falls short of a formal typification. In any case, this material has the annotation " Erythrina  crista 93" - the “93” corresponding with the number cited in Plantae Surinamenses: 12 (1775), making it a post-1767 addition to the herbarium. Krukoff & Barneby (in Lloydia 37: 343. 1974) noted the existence of 888.4 (LINN), but did not indicate it as the type.
