The specimens collected by Jose Jeronimo Triana are an important legacy of the first major scientific expedition organized by the government of Nueva Granada, present-day Colombia: the Chorographic Commission. After finishing his duties in the Commission, Triana gave to the Colombian government a complete set of his specimens in 1856, along with a catalog where he taxonomically organized and numbered his collections. After traveling to Europe in May 1857, carrying part of his herbarium, Triana prepared a new catalog in which he reorganized the numbering of his collections, and added at least three additional number series: the serial numbers (i.e., Triana ``collection numbers{''}), the ``Linden{''} numbers, and the number of duplicates for each gathering. The use of different number series in the two catalogs and on the labels of duplicates of the same gathering stored in numerous herbaria around the world has produced ambiguity in the designation of type specimens collected by Triana. These nomenclatural issues were analyzed, and a guideline is presented for lectotypifying plant names for which Triana's specimens were used as types. Sixty-five Triana specimens already deposited in COL were newly identified as types of 62 species names from 36 families, after establishing their proper correspondence to duplicates currently stored in different European herbaria.
