Abstract

Carlos Luis Spegazzini (1858-1926) was a leading figure in Argentinian natural history, mainly recognized for his mycological and vascular plant studies. Information concerning Spegazzini's travels and his botanical work focusing on vascular plants, including his specimens and publications, is provided. The collecting expeditions of Spegazzini and collaborators in Argentina are summarized. The identification of his typic and non-typic materials is frequently complicated by the lack or sparcity of label information. Spegazzini published ca. 100 papers on vascular plants, mostly in Argentinian journals, describing ca. 1000 new taxa. A list of the new genera, species, and infraspecific taxa described by Spegazzini is provided. Spegazzini was professor at the University of La Plata and Buenos Aires in Argentina, curator of the herbarium of the National Department of Agriculture, first head of the herbarium of Museo de La Plata, and founder of an arboretum and an institute of mycology in La Plata city.
