The richness of the Paris herbarium in Asian Astragalus types and lectotypification of Astragalus superbus Bunge

In the context of the Global Plants Initiative digitization project of nomenclatural types and associated data, 864 type specimens of Asian and Middle-Eastern Astragalus L. (Fabaceae) species were discovered in the Paris herbarium collections (P). Emphasis is laid on the Bunge collection from which a significant number of Astragalus type specimens originate, as well as on the Paris herbarium’s richness in type specimens. Finally, a lectotype is designated for Astragalus superbus Bunge based on material used in this study.
