*Hyaloseris boliviensis J. Koster, Blumea 5(3): 668 (1945) = Hyaloseris salicifolia (Griseb.) Hieron.

*Hyaloseris camataquiensis Fiebrig, Bot. Jahrb. Syst. 45(1): 43 (1910). Type: not cited. Undoubtedly based on Herzog 3067, and cited by Koster (1945: 668) as Camataqui, 2500 m alt., 10 Febr. 1904, Fiebrig n. 3067. Holotype: ?B; isotype: GOET, US (01098563).

Argentina, Bolivia (Potos).

Notes: Koster (1945: 667) ascribed the name to Hieron.YT', and Espinar (1973: 206) to Hieron. ex Koster. Fiebrig (1910: 43) provided a German description in the prose, thus validating the name provided.

Hyaloseris longicephala B. L. Turner, Phytologia, 59(5): 317 (1986). Type: BOLIVIA. Chuquisaca: Prov. Oropeza, an der strasse von Sucre Richtung Cochabamba, vor Surima; ca 2000 m, 27 Jun 1980, T. Feuerer & N. Hohne 45762. Holotype: TEX; isotypes HBG.

Dinoseris salicifolia Griseb., Abh. Knigl. Ges. Wiss. G ttingen 24(1): 214 (March-April 1879); Symb. Fl. Argent. : 214 (1879). Types: T.: Sierra de Tucuman, pr. el Sauciliaco. J.O.: Tarija, Valle del Tambo. Syntypes: Lorentz & Hieronymus 862, 950, 1006, GOET. Note: Ariza Espinar (1973: 207) mentioned that the isocotipos were in CORD and had seen the cotipos, but did not lectotypify this name. It is apparent from the material in GOET that none of the syntypes has been selected yet.
