Type Information

Collector and Number: Regel s.n.

Locality: Ex horto Petropolitano

Type Location(s): NT:LE; INT:K

Type notes: From Lindstrom, Taxon 58(1): 266 (2009): “Stevenson & Sabato (1986) attributed first publication of Z. baraquiniana to Regel in 1876 (see above), but the name was in fact validly published eight years earlier. Under Art. 48.1, Regel cannot be considered to have published a later homonym, and so, as it does not appear that any material associated with the first valid publication was preserved, Stevenson & Sabato’s citation of a Regel specimen as holotype is to be treated as an error for a neotype designation under Art. 9.8.”

This name is considered a Synonym of Zamia poeppigiana Mart. & Eichler

Nomenclatural notes: Authorship attributed to Masters who was editor of Gardner's chronicle when protologue was published.
