Abstract

Between 1881 and 1884, botanical collector Cyrus Guernsey Pringle made almost 2,700 collections of vascular plants in the western United States and Mexico. Of these, about 8%, representing 57 families, were considered new to science. This paper presents 230 taxa for which Pringle's fieldwork supplied nomenclatural types. Questions are identified and discussed regarding both Pringle's collections and the type status of these names. Fifteen lectotypes are designated herein.
