The name of the common purslane, Portulaca sativa, is lectotypified with an illustration from Lobel's Plantarum Seu Stirpium Icones and a supporting epitype specimen is designated. P. officinarum is shown to be a superfluous, though formally legitimate, name for P. oleracea. Confirmed records of P. sativa s.str. for several European and Mediterranean territories are listed.
