This article continues the series of publications devoted to historical collections and collections of type herbarium specimens preserved in the Herbarium of the Botany Department, St. Petersburg State University (SPbSU) (LECB). A critical study of fam. Tamaricaceae in Herbarium LECB identified 48 type samples for 33 taxa of the genera Eichwaldia, Myricaria, Reaumuria and Tamarix. Lectotype for T. angustifolia Ledeb. is proposed. The collection presents the types (syntypes and isotypes) for taxa described by C. Willdenow, Marschall von Bieberstein, C. Ledebour, A. A. Bunge, V. L. Komarov, S. G. Gorshkova and others from Central Asia, Iran, the Caucasus, Crimea, and even from South Africa. Refs 35.
