Anemonastrum antucense (Poepp.) Mosyakin & de Lange  LSID  comb. nov.

Anemone antucensis  Poepp., Fragm. Syn. Pl.: 27. 1833. Lectotype (designated by Britton 1892: 229; designation confirmed and specified here) . CHILE. Bío Bío Province: Field label (manu Poeppig?): "No. 751. Anemone  . A.". Printed label: “(Pöppig Coll. pl. Chil. III) 150. Anemone antucensis  Kz. | Syn. pl. Amer. austr. msc. | Diar. 751 | In Chil. austr. sylv. alpin. Andes de Antuco. | Decbr. lecta". Curatorial label: "Herb. Mus. Paris | Amérique Méridionale. Poeppig. (1868 [the date of provenance?-S.M. & P.dL.], No. 34)" (P00585248!; Isolectotypes: G? fide Ziman et al. 2006: 2017, as “lectotype”, non vidi, HAL0077581!, BPI181305! fragments of leaves from a syntype, affected by Urocystis  ).


Ziman et al. ( 2006: 217) provided the following type information on Anemone antucensis  : 'Type: Chile australes, silvis alpinis, Pico de Pilque", 12.1832. Poeppig 751 (lectotype-G; isolectotype-P!)'. However, Britton (1892: 229) much earlier listed a specimen (syntype) "Poeppig 150" and noted that the "Type in the Paris Herbarium". We were able to find information on only one syntype of A. antucensis  deposited in P. Consequently, Britton’s type designation should be followed and the lectotype of A. antucensis  is the specimen P00585248 cited above, while a specimen from G is thus considered an isolectotype.
