The typification of 14 species names authored by Prain in Erycibe (Convolvulaceae) is reviewed. The species range from Myanmar to Taiwan and New Guinea, with most from the Malay Peninsula. For 12 of the names, lectotypes in CAL were designated by Hoogland without seeing the specimens. Either through failure to find the designated specimen, or location of more than one specimen in the designated herbarium, we make 12 new lectotype designations, nine of which are at the second stage.
