Type Specimens
  • LT: Herb. Linn. - 464.41. (LINN/A:LINN-464.41) LT originally cited as LINN "22". According to the Linnaean Typification Project page: "Löve indicates the type as "LINN "22" ", but on p. 161 mentions that the type sheet bears two specimens. This clearly refers to sheet 464.41, and not to sheet 464.38 (which bears three specimens), subsequently treated as the type by den Nijs (in Feddes Repert. 95: 51-52. 1984). See discussion of this by Wilson (in Telopea 7: 85. 1996)."
