The lectotype of Lycopersicon puberulum Phil.: the specimen Philippi s.n. in herbarium SGO (specimen accession no. 042824, barcode SGO000004416), showing shorter leaves with less complex lobing than those of L. bipinnatifidum Phil. (Fig. 14, p. 67). Lycopersicon puberulum is a heterotypic synonym of both L. chilense Dunal (Fig. 13, p. 66) and L. bipinnatifidum. 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.
