The status of Geaster and Geastrum and their typification is examined at the light of modifications adopted in the ICBN in 1981. It is concluded Geaster is to be treated as an orthographic variant of Geastrum. This name is typified by the plate XLVI of Schmidel, that is the type of both G. multifidum Pers. (name to be used for designating the type) and its superfluous but sanctioned synonym G. coronatum Pers.: Pers. (name formerly used for the type designation).
