Abstract

A search of various literature sources produced more than 100 newly recognised examples where the species name of a plant fossil-species was published earlier than the same name as applied to an exant angiosperm species. These later homonyms are listed and new names are proposed in 34 cases. Two examples will be the subject of conservation proposals. Changes in the accepted name or in full citation of the correct name are given in 14 cases. Two new combinations for infraspecific names are made. Some comments on avoiding making later homonyms when naming angiosperm species or making new combinations are made.
