Nomenclatural Comment
Page 657: Some authorities distinguish L. pedunculatus from L. uliginosus Schkuhr, but none of the characters used are satisfactory as considerable variation can be found in floral, vegetative and hair characters within populations and even within plants. It seems best regarded as one variable sp. for which the earlier name, L. pedunculatus Cav., must be used (Webb, C. J. and Forde, M. B., in prep.). Almost all records of L. corniculatus wild in N.Z. are referable to L. pedunculatus as are early records of L. major. L. pedunculatus may be distinguished from L. corniculatus and L. tenuis by the distinct lateral veins of the leaflets.
