In 1776, Rottbøll published 12 species from Rolander’s collection of plants of Suriname. Here, we update the taxonomic identity of those species, discussing, whenever pertinent, their nomenclatural status. Six of the 12 names and also two of their synonyms, one the name of a species described by Linné filius and another described by Kunth, are lectotypified. Type localities and dates are provided, whenever possible.
