Specimens at the Berlin-Dahlem herbarium collected by Commerson, Dusén, Kuntze and Pöppig, and representing original material (isotypes) of names in Misodendrum, are listed and discussed. A lectotype is designated for Misodendrum linearifolium var. contractum. Several other noteworthy historical specimens are briefly mentioned. These include some specimens collected by C. Gay and R. A. Philippi, and one, in the Willdenow herbarium, collected by L. Née.
