[Excerpt] Lycopodium mirabilewas described by Willdenow (Sp. Pl. 5(1):11. 1810) from Ceylon [Sri Lanka] and Cochinchina [southern Vietnam] citing two synonyms from five earlier works (“Lycopodium phleg-mariaβ.Lam. encycl.3.p. 618.Loureiro cochin.2.p.837”and“Selagoindica orientalis sive Plegmaria admirabilis zeylanica. Breyn. cent. 180. t. 92. Raj. hist. 1582 [sic = t. 1852]. suppl. 655. Dill. musc. t. 61.f.D.E.F.”) and giving the distribution, etc. as “Habitat in Zeylonà,Cochinchina. H. (v. s.)”. All the synonym references refer to a species similar to Lycopodium phlegmaria (≡Phlegmariurus phlegmaria(L.)Holub). Willdenow indicated that he had seen dried material, but specimen details were not cited. The only material labelled L. mirabile in the Willdenow Herbarium at B is barcode B -W 19340 -01 0 (!), which was considered to be the holotype by Øllgaard (in Biol. Skr. 34: 57. 1989). This is technically an inadvertent lectotypification, as additional original elements are known.
