In this work, we argue that the “lectotypification” of Pentagonia macrophylla Benth. made by Andersson & Rova in Flora of Ecuador (2004) was in fact a neotypification, because the designated type was not original material. Original material of this species, collected by Andrew Sinclair, has now been located in the K herbarium at Kew Gardens, and is here designated as the lectotype of this name.
