The identity of Cremanthodium citriflorum (Asteraceae, Senecioneae)

LONG WANG, CHEN REN, qin-er Yang


Our critical observations of herbarium specimens (including type material) and living plants demonstrate that Cremanthodium citriflorum is identical to C. delavayi and that the holotype sheet of C. farreri is a mixture of C. delavayi and C. farreri. We therefore place C. citriflorum in synonymy with C. delavayi. We recognize C. farreri as an independent species and designate a lectotype for it. In addition, a lectotype is designated for C. delavayi, a species described on the basis of several syntypes.
