Lycianthes nitida Bitter (1919: 501)  

Type (lectotype designated here):— GUATEMALA. [Alta Verapaz:] Cubilqüitz , 350 m, Aug 1907, von Tuerckheim II 59 ( BR barcode 000000552878 [digital photo!], isolectotypes E barcode E00190704 [digital photo!], M [cited by Bitter (1919), not found at M], NY barcode 00007318 [digital photo!], NY barcode 00007334 [digital photo!], U barcode U-0113931 [digital photo!],   US barcode 00027489 [digital photo!], WIS!)   .

Nomenclatural notes:—Bitter cited two gatherings in the protologue, and he cited the herbaria that housed the specimens that he examined: von Tuerckheim II 59 (M) and Donn. Sm. 7637 (B and M). We could not locate the original syntypes seen and cited by Bitter at M or at B, and no F photo negative of the B specimens is available. However, the gathering of von Tuerckheim II 59 was widely distributed and we were able to trace specimens in the herbaria BR, E, M, NY, U, US, and WIS: ( BR barcode 000000552878, E barcode E00190704, M [cited by Bitter (1919), not found at M], NY barcode 00007318, NY barcode 00007334, U barcode U-0113931, US barcode 00027489, WIS). Therefore, we are designating an isosyntype at BR ( BR barcode 000000552878) as the lectotype of the name Lycianthes nitida   . Although Bitter did not mention or annotate the BR specimen, it is considered part of the original material (see Art. 9.3(c) of the ICN, McNeill et al. 2012).

Taxonomic notes:— Lycianthes nitida   is a relatively common and widely distributed (southern Mexico through Central America) epiphytic herb or shrub with glabrous foliage and purple, stellate corollas.
