Cheilanthes radiata (L.) R. Br. ex J. Smith, Jour. Bot. Hook. 4: 1S9. 1841.

Hypolepis radiata (L.) Hook., Sp. Fil. 2: 12, t. 91 A. 1852.

Lectotype. I choose the specimen labelled “Adiant. 3 radiatum” [in the hand of Linnaeus, the specimen perhaps from Jamaica collected by Sloane] (BM), which is the only specimen of this species in the Linnaean Herbarium and which agrees with the notation in Savage’s Catalogue.
