Corispermum macrocarpum Bunge


Corispermum macrocarpum Bunge   in Maxim., Prim. Fl. Amur.: 226 (1859).

Type (lectotype, here designated by Sukhorukov & Zhang):— RUSSIA. Amur: 20 September 1854, Maximowicz s.n. (LE!)   .

Notes: — Iljin (1936) and some electronic resources (e.g., IPNI 2013) indicate that C. macrospermum Trautvetter (1884: 130)   is a nomenclatural synonym of C. macrocarpum   . However, Trautvetter (1884) did not describe C. macrospermum   as a separate species, and the epithet “macrospermum” is indeed a typographical error (see also correct citation in Trautvetter 1884: 130, ” C. macrospermum   [ macrocarpum   ] Bunge in Maxim [owicz]).”
