Annotation: No authorship is given for the names of sections of Psychotria published here, but these are attributed in the Genera Plantarum Rubiaceae (2: 124) to Bentham as author, and the introductory part of Oersted's article attributes the taxonomy "mostly" [mestendeels] to Bentham. No type was clearly designated in the protologue, where Bentham included two species: Psychotria hartwegii Benth. and Psychotria laevis DC. Later Bremekamp raised this section to genus rank and desginated Notopleura uliginosa as the type of the genus, but Bentham did not list that species by that name and Bremekamp did not indicate that Bentham's Psychotria laevis was later considered a synonym of Psychotria uliginosa, so his typification is not clearly related to Bentham's species. Bullock intended to clarify the situation, that Psychotria hartwegii was the type of the genus, but because this was not clearly indicated by Bentham in either the protologue or the Genera Plantarum (2: 124), Bullock's designation is better considered a lectotypification under our current nomenclatural rules. !CMT 2013
