Type Information
Type locality: "Habitat in Europaea frigidae sylvis opacis, supra saxa ante unum alterumve annum eversa et supinata." [Lives in the European cold dark woods, over rocks in front of one or two years cut and supine (?)]; (Koeman 1985: 1159) Notes: Lectotype (designated by Irvine in Spencer & al. 2009: 240):" [illustration] “Byssus” in Micheli, Nova Pl. Gen.: t. 89, f. 3. 1729." "Note (in Spencer & al. 2009: 240 . – Because the lectotype is “demonstrably ambiguous and cannot be critically identified for purposes of the precise application of the name” (Art. 9.7), an epitype may need to be selected; this should await ongoing taxo- nomic investigations (F. Rindi & J.M. Lopez-Bautista, pers. comm.). No corresponding material can be found in the Micheli Herbarium (FI)."
