An analysis of collections of nongeniculate Corallinales (Rhodophyta) in the Onderzoekinstituut Rijksherbarium/Hortus Botanicus, Rijksuniversiteit Te Leiden (abbreviated L) has revealed the presence of type material for 114 species and infraspecific taxa. These include 35 holotypes, 21 lectotypes, 1 neotype, 15 isotypes, 25 isolectotypes, 12 syntypes and 4 paratypes. Type material of 25 authors is represented and includes taxa described by F.T. Kützing, M.H. Foslie, F.R. Kjellman, R.A. Philippi, F. Hauck, and F. Heydrich. Lectotypes have been newly designated for Lithophyllum crassum, L. crispatum, Lithothamnion macquariensis, and L. mamillosum. For each taxon, information on the protologue, nature of the type material, type locality, references to typification and published illustrations and pertinent nomenclatural and other comments are provided.
