|Title||The lectotypification of Acrostichum acuminatum Willd. and the reinstatement of the name Photinopteris speciosa (Bl.) Presl|
|Journal||Blumea - Biodiversity, Evolution and Biogeography of Plants|
|Abstract||The name Acrostichum acuminatum Willdenow (1810) was designated by Morton (1967) as the basionym of Photinopteris acuminata (Willd.) Morton. As a consequence the generally accepted name Photinopteris speciosa (Bl.) Presl (bas.: Lomaria speciosa Blume, 1828) was sunk by him into synonymy.|
The diagnosis and the description of Acrostichum acuminatum in the original publication include details of both sterile and fertile leaves. The material that Willdenow had at hand was a specimen of Photinopteris speciosa collected by the Malaspina expedition, labeled ‘Peru’, but obviously originating from the Philippines (Herb. Willdenow no. 19539, B*). The material is sterile; see also Presl (1851:192). The description of the fertile elements was based completely on ‘Lingua cervina, scandens, Citrei foliis, major’ (Plumier, 1705), a fern from Martinique which is now attributed to Bolbitis nicotianifolia (Sw.) Alston.
