status

 

Cyperus sect. Ascolepis (Nees ex. Steud.) Bauters, stat. & comb. nov.

Basionym: Ascolepis Nees ex Steud., Syn. Pl. Glumac. 2: 105 (Steudel 1855). Type: Ascolepis eriocauloides ( Steudel 1842: 597) Nees (1855: 105) .

Synonyms: — Platylepis Kunth (1837: 269) , nom. illeg. Lectotype (designated by Huygh et al. 2010a):— Platylepis capensis Kunth (1837: 269) [≡ Ascolepis capensis (Kunth) Ridley (1884: 164) ].

Pterachne Schrader ex Nees (1842: 62) , nom. nud. in syn.

Pterogyne Schrader ex Nees (1842: 62) , nom. nud. in syn.

Antrolepis Welwitsch (1859: 578) , nom. provis.

Note: —This section includes, as defined here, 20 species. According to Govaerts et al. (2013), Ascolepis includes 22 species. Since Ascolepis lineariglumis Lye (1983a: 561) and Ascolepis elata Welwitsch (1869: 79) are both included in the complex of Ascolepis protea Welwitsch (1969: 75) s.l., we chose not to combine them into Cyperus as separate species. Also, Ascolepis menonguensis Meneses (1956: 259) , a species only known from its type-collection, is probably an aberrant form of Ascolepis protea . Furthermore, we chose not to combine the various infraspecific names under Ascolepis protea into Cyperus pending confirmation of the taxonomic status of these taxa.
