MEZZONATO-PIRES, Ana Carolina and MILWARD-DE-AZEVEDO, and Michaele Alvim. Lectotypes for species of Passiflora L. (Passifloraceae) described by João Barbosa Rodrigues. Acta Bot. Bras. [online]. 2017, vol.31, n.1, pp.134-136. Epub Jan 30, 2017. ISSN 0102-3306. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0102-33062016abb0330.
During taxonomic review of the Brazilian species of the Passiflora subgenus Astrophea and P. subg Decaloba, six names published by the Brazilian botanist João Barbosa Rodrigues were found in need of discussion: Passiflora alliacea, P. amalocarpa, P. cabedelensis, P. hexagonocarpa, P. hydrophila and Tacsonia coccinea. The original illustrations are here designated as lectotypes for P. alliacea, P. amalocarpa, P. cabedelensis (a synonym of P. amalocarpa), P. hexagonocarpa, P. hydrophila (a synonym of P. costata) and Tacsonia coccinea (a synonym of P. spinosa).
