Annotation: TL2, p. 697, entry 4008: Bemerkungen ueber die Familie der Piperaceen was a reprinted work in Jun. 1840, but the validating treatment for Enckea published in Linnaea, vol. 13(6): 561–726, in 1839.
Nomenclature Reason: Enckea as circumscribed by Kunth included the type of a previously published, valid genus, Gonistum Raf. Thus, Enckea is a superfluous name, because Kunth should have used the older name. This name validly published later as Piper sect. Enckea C. DC.

Note: No type was designated by Kunth.
Gonistum Raf.
