Abstract

The early nomenclature and typification of the name Aloe ferox Mill. (Asphodelaceae: Alooideae) is discussed and clarified. It is shown that a plate included in Munting (1727) is the lectotype of the name; we also designate an epitype. A previous neotypification of the name A. ferox was redundant.
