    Notes

    • monobasic = founded containing a single species, same as "monotypic" if no more species are added
    • gen. vern. = vernalis, genetically determined spring generation
    • gen. aest. = aestivus, genetically determined summer generation
    • gen. vest. = genetically determined vestigial form
    • (!) = nomen collectivum, a nomenclatural/descriptive term incorrectly used by Curt Eisner in a taxonomic sense (infrasubspecific)
    • i.l. = in litteris, correspondence, not published
