AbstractO. Schwarz (in Repert. Spec. Nov. Regn. Veg. 47: 288. 1939) was the first in recent years to draw attention to the Genera Plantarum Vocabulis Characteristicis Definita of N. M. von Wolf and to the fact that certain generic names were validly published in it for the first time. Mansfeld (in Repert. Spec. Nov. Regn. Veg. 48: 267. 1940; op. cit. 49: 42. 1940) and H. P. Fuchs (in Verh. Naturf. Ges. Basel 72: 344-345. 1961), however, argue that none of the names in Wolf’s work can be regarded as validly published. A study of the work and the others associated with it (Wolf, Concordantia Botanica, 1780; Genera et Species Plantarum Vocabulis Characteristicis Definita, 1781) has led me to the opposite conclusion, and in my view some twenty generic names are in fact validly published in Wolf’s Genera.
Bibliographic details of the works in question are: Genera Plantarum / Vocabulis Characteristicis / Definita / 1776. [1]—8, table (bound in), [1]-[178]. 8°. There is no indication of author.
