Discussion

  • In his protologue, Scheffer (1876) refers to material grown at Bogor Botanic Garden from seed collected by Teijsmann in Ceram. Type material has not yet been located in the Bogor herbarium. Two specimens in Florence may represent fragments of the type. The first, annotated "Nel Giard. Bot. di Buitenzorg [in Bogor Botanic Garden] Dr. Scheffer, 1877", is a likely candidate as a type duplicate, but the date does not conform precisely to the publication date of the protologue. The second, annotated "Amboina ad Hutumuri leg. Teijsmann ex. Herb. Bogor.", could be identified as type material, but the locality information does not match Scheffer's protologue. The existence and location of type material cannot be confirmed until a more thorough search has been made at the Bogor herbarium. (W.J. Baker & A.H.B.
