The name Epipactis kleinii, nom nov., is proposed as an avowed substitute f
or E. parviflora (A. & C. Niesch.) E. Klein, an illegitimate later homonym
of E. parviflora (Blume) A.A. Eaton (drop Neottia parviflora Blume, non Sm.
), itself an illegitimate name which is presently created as synonym of Goo
dyera procera (Ker Gawl.) Hook. A brief history is presented of the names c
oncerned, to justify the new proposal.
