4. Balbisia peduncularis (Lindl.) D. Don (1831: 11) 

Lectotype (here designated): [ CHILE. IV. Región de Comquimbo :] Coquimbo, no date, Macrae s.n., Herb. Soc. Hort. Lond. anno 1831 (K-000531455!). 

Ξ Ledocarpon pedunculare Lindley (1831  : t. 1392).

Ξ Cruckshanksia peduncularis (Lindl.) Steudel (1840: 448) 

= Cruckshanksia cistiflora Hooker (1831: 211  , t. 90).— Lectotype (here designated): [ CHILE. IV. Región de Comquimbo :] Coquimbo, no date, Cruckshanks s.n. (K-000531453!).

= Ledocarpon cistiflorum Meyen (1834: 470)  , nomen nudum

This species is superficially similar to B. verticillata  and has been confused with that species in the past ( Macbride 1949). However, the wider leaves ( Fig. 2 CView FIGURE 2) and involucral segments ( Fig. 2 DView FIGURE 2) and the larger petals clearly distinguish it from all other species. Its peduncles are usually very long and robust ( Fig. 2 BView FIGURE 2). So far, no material of this species has been encountered either from the extreme north of Chile or from Peru.
