Bidens menziesii (A. Gray) Sherff var. lepida O. Deg. & Sherff, in Sherff, Amer. J. Bot. 38: 65. 1951.
Type information:
Holotype [F]. O. Degener and H. Wiebke 2894. 11 June 1928. Moloka`i: small valley E of east fork of Kawelo Gulch, [southeast] Moloka`i.1500ft. Isotype(s) [BISH! [3], F].

Note: Sherff cited Degener & Wiebke 2894 pro parte for the type; he considered this collection to be a mixture of his var. lepida and the typical variety. Earlier he had considered as var. filiformis the collections he put in his new var. lepida, restricting his concept of var. filiformis to plants from the island of Hawai`i only. He did not cite any isotypes at BISH (or in Herb. Degener), and there is no evidence that he saw two of the isotypes at BISH, but they are considered isotypes because they fit his diagnosis.

Bidens menziesii (A. Gray) Sherff var. leptodonta Sherff, Bot. Gaz. (Crawfordsville) 85: 9. 1928.
Type information:
Lectotype [BM]. W. Hillebrand s.n.. 1851- 1871. Maui: s.l..

Note: The locality stated on the label may be wrong. All other specimens cited were from Hawai`i, and are ssp. filiformis, which doesn't occur on Maui. [Need lectotype author.]

Type Information
Coreopsis menziesii A. Gray , Proc. Amer. Acad. Arts 5: 127 1861.


Note: Syntypes: "Hawaii and Maui." [U. S. Expl. Exped.] "Also collected by Menzies, Chaamisso? and Remy." Sherff (Field Mus. Nat. Hist., Bot. Ser. 16: 15. 1937) cited the U. S. Expl. Exped. sheet from Hawaii as the type (he did not cite an institution, but there is a sheet of this collection at US), but seems not to have actually seen it; apparently he only saw the U. S. Expl. Exped. sheet from Maui at US. This species is currently considered to consist of two subspecies, and lectotypification should be on Maui material to preserve usage.
