Name edit

Pavetta molundensis K.Krause, Bot. Jahrb. Syst. 57(1): 39 (1920)

  • Typus: J. Mildbraed 4673 (in flower, March 1911; Holotypus: B [destroyed]; Lectotypus: HBG [​HBG521307(JSTOR), collected on 19 March 1911, designated by Manning 1996]).
    • Note: although Krause presented collection number as '6473' in the protologue, it has been considered to be an error by other botanists (Bremekamp 1934, Bridson 1978, Manning 1996).
