Dear All:

For many years I have treated a long series of names proposed by
Kosteletzky in his six-volume work entitled “Allgemeine
medizinisch-pharmazeutische Flora” (1831-1836). Somewhere, as I recall, I
found a reference to ranks so that I was able to assign the ranks of
subfamily and tribe to his names under Art. 35.5 of the International Code
of Botanical Nomenclature. An attempt in 2007 to find again this single
statement somewhere in the six volumes was unsuccessful and thus this word
of caution about the use of these names in the hopes that (1) someone
might find this reference and (b) to present alternative places of
publication for these names.

A full listing of these names is at:

http://www.plantsystematics.org/reveal/pbio/fam/kostel.html

where alternative places of publication are reported.

However, a few names are mentioned here in hopes that I might learn if any
of the following have been validly published elsewhere. Three are critical
importance, namely Browallioideae, Rauvolfioideae, and Tribuloideae. On
the latter name, please note the D.M. Porter (in J. Arnold Arbor. 53: 532.
1972) name is not valid as the cited Reichenbach (Consp. Regni. Veg.: 199.
1828) unranked name (Tribulareae) is a nom. nud.

The majority of the following names are of minimal significance today.
