Collector and Number: O.F. Cook & G.N. Collins s.n., NA Sheet #88468, Negative #2376

Locality: Puerto Rico, Vega Baja, 1899

Type Location(s): NT:NA

Type notes: From Calonje et al. (2010), Taxon 59(2): 637-642: 'The lectotype designation of Zamia erosa O.F. Cook & G.N. Collins by Eckenwalder (1980) is corrected to a neotype as it does not constitute original material on which Cook & Collins based their description. The neotype designation is itself superseded, as the specimen selected by Eckenwalder is in serious conflict with the protologue, a conclusion based on overlooked descriptive and geographic information in the protologue, and new collections recently made near the type locality. A new neotype is designated.'

Zamia amblyphyllidia D.W.Stev.
