The distribution, nomenclature, and taxonomy of Rubus cuneifolius Pursh are briefly reviewed. Since there is no known original material for the name R. cuneifolius, a neotype is chosen using recently collected material from southern New Jersey, an area where Frederick T. Pursh most likely observed the species. The misapplication of the name R. parvifolius L. by Thomas Walter in his Flora Caroliniana is also reviewed.
