Currently, the specimens in this herbarium are only searchable using the names written on the sheets by Linnaeus and his son, Linnaeus Fil., and by some subsequent determinations. The currently accepted names for these Linnaean era names can be sourced using the Natural History Museum's Linnaean Plant Name Typification Project ( or by other online resources such as TROPICOS or IPNI. The annotations on the sheets, which are largely by Linnaeus but also bear the handwriting of others including Linnaeus Fil. or James Edward Smith, have not been transcribed into the database. For further information on these annotations please consult:
