The holotype of Lycopersicon chilense Dunal: the specimen Gaudichaud-Beaupré s.n. in herbarium G-DC (specimen barcode G00144031). Lycopersicon chilense is the basionym of Solanum chilense (Dunal) Reiche (Fig. 10, p. 58), and the two names are therefore homotypic synonyms. They have the same type, and they apply to the same taxon as a matter of fact, not as a matter of taxonomic opinion. This also shows that a type specimen is not necessarily a high-quality specimen. — Reproduced by permission of Conservatoire et Jardin botaniques de la Ville de Genève.
