Nomenclatorial and Taxonomic Problems in the Genus Eurotium

  • John I. Pitt
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 102)


The nomenclature of the genus Eurotium is discussed in relation to changes brought about by the recent revision of the Botanical Code. Other nomenclatorial problems, relating to errors in typification, species with closely similar anamorphs or teleomorphs, and old valid names, are also discussed. The taxonomy of the genus is partially revised.
