Lectotypification of Acacia gardneri, A. obtecta, A. sparsiflora and A. whitei (Fabaceae, Mimosoideae)

Phillip G Kodela


This paper lectotypifies four Acacia species that were represented by a number of syntypes or confusing type
designations. Collections were examined at NSW and MEL, while mainly images and specimen data were
assessed for collections held elsewhere, including AD (data only), BM, BRI (data only), K, PERTH and US. The
location and assessment of herbarium specimens that potentially represented types was assisted by searching
records in Australia’s Virtual Herbarium (AVH 2013) and Global Plants (2013). The latter site enabled the
examination of images of a number of type specimens and their label details. Type citations by other authors
for these species were also addressed.
