Abstract:
The taxonomic study of Calyptranthes Sw. (Myrtaceae) in preparation of an annotated checklist, has required a thorough literature survey, extensive visits to herbaria worldwide, and analysis of type collections online. Resulting information has indicated the necessity of lectotypification for several species, nine of which are addressed here: C. fastigiata O. Berg, C. glabrescens Krug & Urb., C. kiaerskovii Krug & Urb., C. longifolia O. Berg, C. multiflora Poepp. ex O. Berg, C. obovata Kiaersk., C. pteropoda O. Berg, C. ruiziana O. Berg, C. schiedeana O. Berg, and C. tetraptera O. Berg.
