Abstract:The correct name for the species in a monotypic Leptarrhena (Saxifragaceae) is L. pyrolifolia (D. Don) R. Br. ex Seringe. Reasons are outlined for believing that Rafinesque was the first to lectotypify the genus (with L. pyrolifolia) and for believing that Small's choice of L. amplexifolia should be superseded. Both species names are lectotypified here, however. In a conspectus of the genus, nine synonyms are identified and one species name excluded.
