Keywords: Flora Argentina, nomenclature, Pilger, Plantago, Rahn, typification


During the preparation of the treatment of the genus Plantago L. for the Flora Argentina project, dozens of names were identified as needing typification to stabilize their nomenclature. As a result, lectotypes are designated for 40 names, second-step lectotypes for four names, and a neotype for P. grandiflora Meyen. Furthermore, erroneous applications in past literature of the term “holotype” are corrected to lectotypes for five names.
