While identifying several unidentified herbarium specimens of Medicago L. and Physalis L. at BLAT, followed by a critical analysis of the protologues of Trigonella monantha C.A.Mey. (≡ Medicago monantha (C.A.Mey.) Trautv.) and Physalis parviflora Lag. (replaced synonym of Physalis lagascae Roem. & Schult.) revealed that these names need to be typified. As a result, lectotypes are designated for these names from the respective collections of C.A. von Meyer and M.Y. Segura Lagasca.
