Hedyotis elatior (H. Mann) Fosberg f. brighamii (Fosberg) Fosberg, Brittonia 8: 167. 1956. Flora of the Hawaiian Islands --Basionym
Type Information
Hedyotis cookiana (Cham. & Schltdl.) Steud. f. brighamii Fosberg, Bernice P. Bishop Mus. Bull. 174: 48 1943.
Moloka`i: s.l.. 1864- 1865. W. T. Brigham 569.
Holotype [BISH].

Note: Mann (1867) cites Kaua`i and Moloka`i as the only localities for Kadua cookiana var. elatior, and cites only one collection, "M. & B. 569." Our interpretation of the labels is that the Moloka`i collection was by Brigham, and the Kaua`i collection was by Mann and Brigham.

=Kadua elatior
