27b. Carpinus orientalis subsp. macrocarpa (Willk.) Browicz  

Flora Iranica 97: 2 ( Browicz 1972). – C. orientalis var. macrocarpa Willk., Forstliche Flora   von Deutschland und Oesterreich ed. 2: 368 ( Willkomm 1887). – C. macrocarpa (Willk.) H.J.P.Winkl., Das Pflanzenreich   IV 61 (Heft 19): 38 ( Winkler 1904). – C. orientalis   f. macrocarpa (Willk.)   Radde- Fom., Trudy fizychno-matematychnogo viddilu. Kiev [Mémoires de la Classe des Sciences Physiques et Mathématiques de l’Académie des Sciences de l’Ukraine] 15 (1): 90 ( Radde-Fomina 1929) nom. nud. pro syn. – Original citation: “In Turkomanien hat [G.S.] Karelin”. – Type: not localized. – Note: The published combination C. orientalis   f. macrocarpa   as a synonym was a misunderstanding by Radde-Fomina. She believed that Medwedew (1909: 32) regarded the taxon as a forma. However, he used the term “form” informally only, because “form” appears in only the text ( Medwedew 1909: 32) while “ var. macrocarpa   ” is written explicitly in the appendix ( Medwedew 1909: 41). Medwedew’s name is unranked, but would have been a later homonym anyway.
