RAMIREZ-ROA, Angélica  and  SKOG, Laurence E.. Validation of two species’ names in the genus Moussonia (Gesneriaceae: Gesnerioideae). Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2021, vol.92, e923717.  Epub Nov 29, 2021. ISSN 2007-8706.

In the revision of the neotropical genus Moussonia published as an e-book, 2 species’ names were not validly published following the rules in the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants (Shenzhen Code). Therefore, the nomenclatural modifications are presented here to validate the names. For M. pedunculata, a revived name, the lectotypification is amended, for M. pendula, a lectotype is selected from the syntypes.

Keywords : Central America; Gloxiniinae; Mesoamerica; Mexico; Nomenclature.
