Abstract

The type status of 146 names of Himalayan taxa is discussed, of which the lectotypes of 133 names are designated here for the first time, including a few that were incompletely lectotypified due to the existence of more than one sheet in the institution where the type was said to be. These 133 species and infraspecfic names were originally described in the genera Arabis (15), Chorispora (4), Cochlearia (4), Dilophia (2), Draba (64), Ermania (2), Erysimum (5), Eutrema (4), Nasturtium (3), Sisymbrium (9), and Thlaspi (2). In addition, lectotypes are designated for one name each in the 15 other genera: Barbarea, Brassica, Capsella, Cardamine, Cheiranthus, Dipoma, Goldbachia, Hemilophia, Hutchinsia, Lepidostemon, Martinella, Megacarpaea, Microsisymbrium, Sinapis, and Sophiopsis. The type status of 13 additional names in Arabis (1), Buchingera (1), Draba (8), Erysimum (2), Parlatoria (1), Parrya (2), Sisymbrium (1), and Torularia (1) are discussed.
