Abstract

Strychnos gubleri was described by François Gustave Planchon based on material collected in what is currently Amazonas state, Venezuela. Although it is one of the most widely cited species of the genus in the literature, it is not listed in Tropicos, appears as “unresolved” in The Plant List, and it was not included in the most recent flora and checklist of the region. We present here a history of the name, point out the valid description, and conclude that this taxon was described again in 1927 as S. panurensis. We also provide miscellaneous information on the species and list specimens cited in the text.
