In the end of the XIXth century French botanist A.R. Franchet has described near 60 taxa in the genus Primula L. In many cases, the original descriptions of Primula taxa were based on one or a few different gatherings, comprising several specimens which were sent to different herbaria. Consequently, a high number of isotypes and syntypes can be found for some names. The modern revision of various Primula taxa during the inspection of material in some important herbaria (BM, E, G, K, LE, MHA, MW, NS, NSK, P, W, WU) and using Databases of herbarium collections through internet, have revealed the need to restrict the typifications of several names. 16 taxa were discussed, 14 names of taxa were typified, 11 of them (P. amethystina, P. bella, P. cernua, P. dryadifolia, P. pinnatifida, P. secundiflora, P. septemloba, P. sonchifolia, P. spicata, P. yunnanensis and P. delavayi) were lectotypified here, also five isolectotypes and 51 syntypes were listed.
