Rhamphicarpa Benth., Companion Bot. Mag. 1: 368 (1836).

  • Lectotype species: R. tubulosa (L.f.) Benth., designated by Pfeiffer, Nom. 2: 939 (1874). Now regarded as synonym of Cycnium tubulosum (L.f.) Engl.


  • The type designated for this circumscription was originally Rhamphicarpa tubulosa (L. f.) Benth., which is now accepted as a synonym of Cycnium tubulosum (L.f.) Engl. If a new type of this genus is not conserved, these species may have to change names or perhaps be transferred to Cycnium E.Mey. ex Benth. or Macrosiphon Hochst..
  • For Rhamphicarpa fistulosa (Hochst.) Benth., see Macrosiphon fistulosus Hochst.. However, this synonymy is not universally accepted. In addition, the nomenclature for Macrosiphon is somewhat confused and indeed it has no type species designated (Tropicos, 2014).
