Lycianthes pilifera (Benth.) Bitter (1919: 427)  

Solanum piliferum Bentham (1840: 68)   .

Type (lectotype designated here):— MEXICO. Oaxaca: Llano Verde, 1839, Hartweg 499 (K barcode K000585745 [digital photo!], isolectotype LD barcode 1212266 [digital photo!]; image of the lectotype available at https://plants.jstor.org/stable/viewer/10.5555/ al.ap.specimen.k000585745)   .

Nomenclatural notes:—Bentham cited one gathering, Hartweg 499, in the protologue with no herbarium or accession numbers specified. We were able to trace two specimens of Hartweg 499: K barcode K000585745, LD barcode 1212266. These specimens completely agree with the protologue and can be safely considered as original material (Art. 9.3. of the ICN, McNeill et al. 2012). The Hartweg 499 specimen at K (K barcode K000585745) is selected here as the lectotype for the name Solanum piliferum   .

Taxonomic notes:— Lycianthes pilifera   is a Mexican endemic that occurs in the states of Veracruz and Oaxaca. It is distinguished by its brownish, simple, acute trichomes and showy flowers with white to purple entire corollas and equal stamens. The lustrous, dark purple fruits with large dark seeds are also unusual.
