San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Spain

We introduced a brief description of one set of plants found in the herbarium of the Real Colegio Alfonso XII of San Lorenzo de El Escorial. All of them were collected in Spain by Eduardo Carreño before moving to Paris in 1838. We also include one sheet of Festuca rubra Lag., belonging to Lagascás herbaria, therefore was named by its discoverer. Other than the historical importance of these sheets, these are the only preserved plants collected by Carreno in Spain, increasing its historical value. Furthermore, we authenticate the handwriting of Carreno and we annul the current beliefs of who the real beneficiary of his will were. Source


We present a brief description of one set of Cistaceae deposited in the herbarium of the Real Colegio Alfonso XII of San Lorenzo de El Escorial. All of them belong to A. J. Cavanilles herbarium. The historical importance of these sheets is increased due to the fact as among them 6 sheets are type materials (Cistus cinereus Cav., Cistus dichotomus Cav., Cistus glaucus Cav., Cistus mollis Cav., Cistus serratus Cav. and Cistus violaceus Cav.) and 3 were used for Willkomm & Lange (1861-1880) as reference in order to establish the species corology in the classic Prodromus Florae Hispanicae. © 2014 Botanica Complutensis.

In this paper the collection named "Plantes D'Espagne, 1850", one of the exsiccata distributed by Eugène Bourgeau, at present kept in the herbarium of the Real Colegio Alfonso XII of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, (Herbarium RCAXII), has been studied. The historical importance of these sheets is increased due to the fact that some of them were used by Willkomm and Lange as chorological data in their classic Prodromus florae hispanicae. Source
