Abstract

Sempervivum guillemotii (Crassulaceae) was discovered and described by Martial Lamotte in the French Alps, but apart from Rouy & Camus, it was never cited in the French floras. Burnat later rediscovered it, but unaware of Lamotte’s name, he published it under the name S. adenotrichum; this name, too, did not find its way into the floras until the recent Flora Gallica. The author rehabilitates this name and designates a neotype for the name S. guillemotii and a lectotype for its synonym S. adenotrichum.
