Abstract


The genus Tephrosia Persoon (1807: 328) is well delimited with ca. 350 species, mostly distributed in the tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world.(Cowie 2004,Schrire 2005,Mabberley 2008).In India, the genus is represented by 27 species and 1 variety (Sanjappa 1992,Krishnaraj et al. 2013).While studying the genus in India, we found that three nameswithin the genusTephrosia are not yet typified: T. hookeriana Wight &Arnott(1834: 212), T. barberi Drummond (1918:320) and T. canarensis Drummond (1918:319). The lectotypes are selected based on Art.9.2 of the Melbourne Code (McNeill et al. 2012). Herbarium acronyms followThiers (2016).
