Cyrtandra longifolia (Wawra) Hillebr. ex C.B. Clarke var. wahiawae A. Heller ex Rock, Amer. J. Bot. 6: 211. 1919.
Type information:
Lectotype [GH]. A.A. Heller 2624. 25 July 1895. Kaua`i: between Hanapepe and Wahiawa Rivers.
Lectotypified in W. L. Wagner & R. K. Shannon. Brittonia 51: 431. 1999. Isolectotype(s) [BISH! [2], NY! [2], US!].

Note: Collection 2624, pro parte. Heller discussed two forms of C. longifolia and mentions the name C. wahiawae, which he clearly states he is not publishing, and Rock only refers to Heller's distribution number, not differentiating between the two collections, so one must be selected as a lectotype. Rock also mentioned that this collection was distributed to various herbaria under two names, C. longifolia and C. wahiawae, the CU sheet being an example of the former, the GH sheet an example of the latter. Heller did not cite a date. The CU sheet is dated 24 August, and was distributed as C. longifolia; it was annotated by Rock as "C. longifolia var. wahiawae (Heller) Rock."
