Palabras clave:

Linnaeus, neotype, nomenclature, pomegranate, Punicaceae, Socotria protopunica


Se discute la tipificación de los nombres Punica nana L. y Punica protopunica Balf. f. El nombre linneano es neotipificado usando un espécimen completo conservado en VAL (Herbario del Jardí Botànic de la Universitat de València). El nombre Punica protopunica es lectotipificado a partir de un espécimen original recolectado por Schweinfurth en Socotra y conservado en K (Herbario de Kew).
