Abstract

The taxa belonging to the genus Aloe published in Synopsis methodica stirpium horti regii taurinensis (Allioni 1760) and in Auctarium ad synopsim methodicam stirpium horti regii taurinensis (Allioni 1773) were examined. The protologues of Aloe maculata All and A. verrucosospinosa All. were analysed and the lectotypes were designated. The homonymy of A. succotrina All. with A. succotrina Weston 1770 was recognized, and the lectotype of this last name was designated. Epitypes were selected to fix the application of the names. A short differential diagnosis of the three species was given and their range discussed; distribution maps based on specimens held in the South African National Herbarium (PRE), KwaZulu-Natal Herbarium (NH), Compton Herbarium (NBG) and the South African Museum Collection (SAM) held in NBG are provided.
