Typification of Three Names in the Genus Periploca (Apocynaceae)
Three names in the genus Periploca L. are discussed and typified. A specimen preserved at BM and collected by Francis Masson in Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain) is designated as the neotype of the name P. laevigata Aiton. A Cavanilles illustration is designated as the lectotype of P. punicifolia Cav., a synonym of P. laevigata. Furthermore, a “second-step” lectotypification is published for the name P. angustifolia Labill.
