Lycianthes geminiflora (M.Martens & Galeotti) Bitter (1919: 497)  

Solanum geminiflorum Martens & Galeotti (1845: 142)   .

Type (lectotype, designated here):— MEXICO. Oaxaca: Chinantla, 3000 ft, Galeotti 1242 ( BR barcode 000000552845 [digital photo!], isolectotypes BR barcode 000000552904 [digital photo!]; LE barcode LE00016926 [digital photo!]; image of the lectotype is available at http://www.br.fgov.be/RESEARCH/COLLECTIONS/HERBARIUM/detail.php?ID=503672)   .

Nomenclatural notes:— Martens and Galeotti (1845) cited one gathering in the protologue: Galeotti 1242, and although no herbarium or exact specimen was specified, the original material collected by Galeotti was first deposited at herbarium BR. We traced two specimens at BR: BR barcodes 000000552845 and 000000552904. One of the Galeotti 1242 specimens at BR ( BR barcode 000000552845) is selected here as the lectotype for the name Solanum geminiflorum     .

Taxonomic notes:— Lycianthes geminiflora   is an herb to shrub with white stellate corollas that occurs in the cloud forests of Mexico. It is closely related to Lycianthes heteroclita ( Sendtner 1846: 193) Bitter (1919: 494)   but occurs at higher elevations and has a smaller calyx. The relationship between the two species needs study.
