Type Information

Type Location(s): NT:pl. 636 in Icon. Pl. Rar. [Jacquin] 3. 1792 (t.p. 1790)

Type notes: Jacquin first published the name Zamia angustifolia in his Collectanea (Collectanea [Jacquin] 3: 263-265. 1789, publ. 1791 ) in 1791 and an accompanying illustration in his Icones Plantarum Rariorum (Icon. Pl. Rar. [Jacquin] 3. 1790, publ. 1792) in 1792. Eckenwalder (J. Arnold Arbor. 61: 715. 1980) incorrectly cited the later publication as the protologue, and designated the illustration published here as the lectotype. Since the illustration was published after the name, Eckenwalder's type designation must be considered a neotype.
