Gouldia ovata (Wawra) Skottsb. var. santalifolia (Fosberg) O. Deg. & I. Deg., Phytologia 7: 466. 1961.
Flora of the Hawaiian Islands --Basionym Type Information Gouldia terminalis (Hook. & Arn.) Hillebr. f. santalifolia Fosberg, Bernice P. Bishop Mus. Bull. 147: 51 1937.
Maui: Olowalu Valley. 10 May 1920. C.N. Forbes 2310.M.
Note: Specific locality taken from Forbes's field notes. Fosberg apparently made in error in affixing his labels, labeling both sheets at BISH as "cotype." We have taken the fuller specimen, which more closely matches his description, to be the holotype, as have others.
