Taxonomic treatment of Solanum chilense (Dunal) Reiche, from page 89 of a monograph in volume 84 of Systematic Botany Monographs by Peralta & al. (2008: 89). Reproduced by permission of the American Society of Plant Taxonomists. Components of this treatment are as follows: Accepted name: Solanum chilense; homotypic synonym: Lycopersicon chilense; citation of holotype at herbarium G-DC (Fig. 13, p. 66) and isotypes at B (destroyed), F (fragment), G, MPU (fragment), P, and WIR. The exclamation mark (!) placed after a herbarium code indicates that the cited specimen has been seen by the author(s). Herbarium codes follow Index Herbariorum ( synonym: Lycopersicon atacamense; designation of lectotype at herbarium SGO. Heterotypic synonym: Lycopersicon bipinnatifidum; designation of lectotype at SGO (Fig. 14, p. 67) and citation of isolectotype at SGO.Heterotypic synonym: Lycopersicon puberulum; homotypic synonym: Lycopersicon peruvianum subsp. puberulum; designation of lectotype at SGO (Fig. 15, p. 68) and citation of isolectotype at WU.The homotypic synonyms (Lycopersicon chilense and Solanum chilense; L. puberulum and L. peruvianum subsp. puberulum) have the same types and therefore apply to the same taxa as a matter of fact. On the other hand, the heterotypic synonyms (Lycopersicon atacamense, L. bipinatifidum, L. chilense, and L. puberulum) have different types, and the authors of this monograph have made the taxonomic decision (a matter of opinion) that they all belong to the same species and to the genus Solanum. The earliest legitimate name for the taxon at specific rank is Lycopersicon chilense Dunal 1852; the combination of its final epithet, chilense, with Solanum, i.e. Solanum chilense, is therefore the correct name for the species.
