The lectotype of Lycopersicon bipinnatifidum Phil.: the specimen Rahmer s.n. in herbarium SGO (specimen accession no. 042822, barcode SGO000004414), showing longer leaves with more complex lobing than those of L. puberulum Phil. (Fig. 15, p. 68). Lycopersicon bipinnatifidum is a heterotypic synonym of both L. chilense Dunal (Fig. 13, p. 66) and L. puberulum. All three names have quite different-looking type specimens and they were originally applied to separate species. Despite these differences they are now considered to belong to the same variable species as a matter of taxonomic opinion. — Reproduced by permission of Museo Nacional de Historia Natural, Chile.
