11. Liquidambar orientalis Mill.   Gard. Dict. ed. 8, n. 2, 1768.

Liquidambar imberbis   Ait., Hortus Kew. (W. Aiton) 3: 365, 1789.

Liquidambar orientalis   Mill. var. integriloba Fiori, Ann. R. Inst. Sup. Agr. For. Naz. 9: 153, 1924.

Note.

Liquidambar orientalis   still needs lectotypification. The prologue states as follows: 'The seeds were sent by Mr. Peyssonel from the Levant, to the French king’s garden at Marli, a few of which were sent to me by Mr. Richard, the king’s gardener, which succeeded in the Chelsea [Physic] garden.'

When examining type material from FI of var. integriloba and the typical Liquidambar orientalis   no clear distinction of lobing was observed. The FI specimens were identified as Liquidambar orientalis   var. integriloba (A. Fiori 230 - 2 sheets, A. Fiori 231 - 2 sheets, G. Jannone s.n. - 1 sheet, A. Fiori s.n. - 1 sheet). When comparing material from Turkey (ISTO), the specimens collected by Aksoy 5202 (2 sheets) have margins that are sometime lobed beyond the typical 5 -lobing, also observed in Aksoy 5201 (ISTO-1 sheet), and Aksoy 5203 (ISTO - 4 sheets), while specimens identified as Liquidambar orientalis   var. integriloba lack such lobing, as seen in Aksoy 5204 (ISTO-3 sheets) also from Turkey. This specimen (Murray 1020 - GH, MO) lacks the typical lobing of var. orientalis and could thus be considered var. integrifolia.
