Bredia longiradiosa var. pulchella (C. Chen) R.C.Zhou & Ying Liu  LSID  comb. nov.

Phyllagathis longiradiosa var. pulchella  C. Chen, Bull. Bot. Res., Harbin 4(3): 52. 1984 (Basionym). Type: China. Guangxi: Daxin, Longjin, 4 May 1959, F.F. Huang 3596 (holotype: GXMI! [GXMI050237]).

Notes.

Three gatherings were cited in the protologue of Barthea cavaleriei  , viz. Cavalerie 1552, Esquirol 1581 and Esquirol 215, without designation of a type. Two of the syntypes, Esquirol 1581 and 215 were later cited as the types of Barthea esquirolii  H. Lév. (1913) and Barthea blinii  H. Lév. (1913), respectively. Guillaumin (1913) transferred Barthea cavaleriei  to Fordiophyton  citing only Cavalerie 1552 under the new combination F. cavaleriei  (H. Lév.) Guillaumin. Diels (1932) formally designated Cavalerie 1552 as the lectotype and published a new combination Bredia cavaleriei  (H. Lév.) Diels. However, this name is an illegitimate later homonym of B. cavaleriei  H. Lév. & Vaniot (see Art. 53.1). Chen (1979) published the replacement name B. longiradiosa  C. Chen for this species, but he did not provide a full reference of the basionym, which makes the name invalid (see Art. 41.1). Chen (1984b) subsequently transferred the species to Phyllagathis  . As the epithet cavaleriei is also not available in Phyllagathis  , a new name P. longiradiosa  C. Chen was published together with the description of a new variety, P. longiradiosa var. pulchella  C. Chen. There are three effectively published names for this species in Bredia  . With B. cavaleriei  (H. Lév.) Diels illegitimate and B. longiradiosa  C. Chen invalid, the only legitimate name, B. longiradiosa  C. Chen ex Govaerts is adopted as the correct name for this species.
