In 1896, Paul Évariste Parmentier published a monograph on the systematic leaf and twig anatomy of a broadly defined Magnoliaceae. The Histoire des Magnoliacées includes description of some 34 new taxa. Most of these were based on herbarium specimens received from Ferdinand von Mueller in Melbourne that are now present in the Paris herbarium. The taxa described by Parmentier and their typification are reviewed. The types of some six taxa have yet to be found, but most names are now typified with one new lectotypification in the current paper. Drimys vascularis P.Parm. is reported as a new synonym of Cinnamodendron axillare (Nees) Endl. ex Walp. (Canellaceae).
