Typification of the Linnaean name Myosotis nana (Boraginaceae)

April 4, 2019

by Gabriele Galasso, Federico Selvi

In this note we designate a lectotype and a supporting epitype for the Linnaean name Myosotis nana L., whose validity has been questioned by some authors. The name is shown to be validly published by Linnaeus and, as such, the correct basionym for Eritrichium nanum (L.) Schrad. ex Gaudin, a well-known European alpine plant.
