Lectotype: TCD, Hooker and Borrer, Cawsie, undated, labelled 'Br. Flora C. Hookeri Cawsie Hook. Borrer', in Harvey's hand. Other material: BM(K), three specimens. Comments: Harris (1966) cited a K specimen, supposedly from Holyhead, Anglesey. None of the K material mentioned above is so annotated and the specimen at TCD is the legitimate choice of lectotype."
