7. Liquidambar formosana   Hance, Ann. Sc. Nat. Ser. V. v. 215, 1866. TYPE. CHINA: Taiwan: Martio 1864, R. Oldham s.n. (lectotype here designated, P [P00749063!]; isolectotypes: NY [NY00356137!], P [P00749064!]).

Liquidambar acerifolia   Maxim., in Bull. Acad. Petersb. x. 486, 1866.

Liquidambar edentata   Merrill, in Journ. Arnold Arb. viii. 6, 1927. (TYPE. CHINA: Fujian [Fukien]: probably near Foochow, F.T. Metcalf & T.C. Chang 877,fruit only(Lectotype here designated: UC [UC 288168!]).

Liquidambar maximowiczii   Miq., Ann. Mus. Bot. Lugd. Bat. 3: 200, 1867.

Liquidambar rosthornii   Diels, Bot. Jahrb. Syst. 29(3-4): 380, 1900.

Liquidambar tonkinensis   A. Cheval. in Bull. Econ. Indochine, n. s. 10: 839, 1918.

Note.

A few specimens from Hunan and Guangdong exhibit pubescent stems, leaf surfaces and lobing attributable to young plants, previously annotated by Merrill (1934) as " Liquidambar formosana   var. heterolobata": Tsang 20927 (MO, SYS), B. Xiong 8845, 9492, 10032 (MO), Hupeh Prov.: Wilson 513 (GH-2 sheets). This variety has never been formally published. These specimens are here referred to Liquidambar formosana   .

The type of Liquidambar edentata   Merrill is a mixture of a) Liquidambar formosana   Hance [UC288168] as a single fruit mounted on the sheet, and b) a large branch of Acer tutcheri   Duthie. Thus, lectotypification is required. One of the duplicates of F.T. Metcalf and T.C. Chang 877 at UC [UC258487] bears a label with the original handwriting of Merrill: " Liquidambar edentata   Merr.", but the reference to the original publication ("Journ. Arnold Arbor. 8:6. 1927. Type in US Natl. Herb.") is not Merrill’s own handwriting and was probably later added (as determined by John Boggan [US] from comparison with other holotype material at US described by Merrill). All duplicates of Metcalf & Chang 877 [A 258487!, SYS 00072571!, UC 258487!] consist only of the branch of Acer tutcheri   , without the Liquidambar   fruit.
