Abstract


Critical observations on both herbarium specimens (including type material) and living plants demonstrate that Ligularia duciformis, L. konkalingensis and L. nelumbifolia (Asteraceae, Senecioneae) are conspecific. We therefore place the former two names into the synonymy of L. nelumbifolia. Lectotypification is proposed for L. konkalingensis.
