TYPE—According to Coker and Couch (1928), the holotype of Bovista candida is in the Schweinitz Herbarium at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. There is an isotype of Bovista circumscissa at the Curtis Herbarium, Alton Natural History Society, Alton, Hampshire, England. JStor Plant Science reports an isotype collection at the herbarium of the University of Montpelier, collection number MPUC03224, from Morocco in 1934. Bates (2009) states that the holotype has been misplaced and isotype material of Bovista candida is at the herbarium of the University of North Carolina, citing Carolina, U.S.A. as the type locality.
