[GH]. Lectotypified in Sherff. Bernice P. Bishop Mus. Bull. 135: 66. 1935.
Note: Both the lectotype and the isolectotype are mixed collections with L. rockii Sherff var. dissecta Sherff. The other material included in L. heterophylla by Gray was used as the type for L. rockii Sherff var. dissecta Sherff (US). Gardner (1979) incorrectly cites a Hillebrand specimen as the type for this name.
