The current neotype for the name Cucumis acutangulus L. is incorrect according to Art. 9.13 of the ICN, as original material is extant. The name is lectotypified using a specimen from the Linnean herbarium at the Swedish Museum of Natural History, Stockholm. A second-step lectotypification is proposed for the name Cucurbita umbellata J.G. Klein ex Willd., a heterotypic synonym of Luffa acutangula (L.) Roxb.
