Reinstatement of the Name Leptolobium Vogel (Leguminosae, Papilionoideae, Sophoreae)

Abstract

Morphological studies of Acosmium Schott indicate that the majority of species currently included in the genus should be transferred to Leptolobium Vogel. This paper presents a nomenclatural treatment reflecting reinstatement of the name Leptolobium. Five new combinations are made, five new synonyms are recognized, lectotypes of five species names are designated, and two names, hitherto assigned to Acosmium, are excluded from both that genus and Leptolobium.
