Abstract

A specimen conserved in the Erbario Patavinum (PAD), Padua, Italy, is designated as the epitype of Hibiscus pentacarpos L. (Malvaceae) in order to avoid any ambiguity in the interpretation of the lectotype previously designated by Alexander et al. (2012: 115, [icon] tab. 91) from Zannichelli's pre-Linnaean Istoria Piante (1735: 155). Kosteletzkya pentacarpos (L.) Ledeb. var. albiflora (Sacc. ex Fiori) P. P. Ferrer & O. J. Blanch. is presented as a new combination from H. pentacarpos var. [β] albiflorus Sacc. ex Fiori and the name is neotypified.
