Gouldia terminalis (Hook. & Arn.) Hillebr. var. elongata (A. Heller) Fosberg, Bernice P. Bishop Mus. Bull. 147: 32. 1937.
Flora of the Hawaiian Islands --Basionym Type Information Gouldia elongata A. Heller , Minnesota Bot. Stud. 1: 897 1897.
Kaua`i: [ridge] between Hanapepe and Wahiawa Rivers, [in wet boggy woods]. 2500 ft. 15 July 1895. A.A. Heller 2606.
Note: Collection 2606, pro parte. There is a discrepancy between the date Heller cited (25 July) and the date on the MIN sheet (15 July). The word "type" is written on the label of the MIN sheet, and we take it to be the holotype, assuming that the date cited by Heller is an error. Other collections distributed under Heller 2606 were collected at the head of the valley opposite Gay & Robinson's Hanapepe valley house, 23 July (explicitly excluded by Heller, citing them under Kadua knudsenii); between the Hanapepe and Wahiawa Rivers, 25 July (BISH! , NY , US!); and on the ridge west of the Hanapepe River, 22 August (MO!, US!), and are not types. There are two sheets at BISH that are possible isotypes, but these could not be located in August 1997.
