C.F. Meissner's species of Acacia (Leguminosae : Mimosoideae) : typification of names
MASLIN, B.R. AND COWAN, R.S.

The type status of names for all 56 taxa described by Meissner in Lehmann’s "Plantae Preissianae" (1844 and 1848) and in a subsequent paper in "Botanisches Zeitung" (1855) has been carefully assessed. Consequently, we have fixed the application of these names by choosing lectotypes wherever possible from among the syntypes, particularly those at BM, LD and NY. Of the lectotypes selected here 19 are at LD, 10 are at NY and 2 at BM.
