Dowe, J.L. & D.R. Hodel (2021). Taxonomy and nomenclature of four unresolved names published by Udo Dammer in the genus Chamaedorea (Arecaceae). Candollea 76: 93–98. In English, English abstract.

In 1905, Udo Dammer published an account of Chamaedorea Willd. based on the unpublished manuscripts of his friend and mentor Hermann Wendland who had died in 1903. Dammer introduced numerous novel names, most of which were nomenclaturally valid. However, a few names have remained unresolved. We investigated the nomenclatural status of four names – Chamaedorea exorrhiza H. Wendl. ex Dammer, Chamaedorea galeottiana H. Wendl. ex Dammer, Chamaedorea homomalla H. Wendl. ex Dammer and Chamaedorea inaequilateralis H. Wendl. ex Dammer. We determined that they are validly published but are synonyms of earlier described species. Three new synonyms are proposed and we designate four lectotypes from specimens at GOET.
