The lectotypification of Bauhinia ornata Kurz var. kerrii (Gagnep.) K. Larsen & S.S. Larsen based on Kerr 1740 (K) presently stands good though there is a collection of Kerr 1740 at P where Francois Gagnepain’s types are supposed to be present.


褐毛羊蹄甲(Bauhinia ornata Kurz var. kerrii (Gagnep.) K. Larsen & S.S. Larsen)該變種發表時適當地以Kerr 1740 (K)為選定模式。然而,尚有一份收藏於P的Kerr 1740標本也同時存在。
