Type information:
Holotype [P]. U. Faurie 1012. March 1910. Kaua`i: Holokele [Olokele]. Isotype(s) [BM].

Note: Sherff labeled the photo of the P sheet as "cotype," but in his monograph (1935) he made it clear that he did not know where the holotype was and that he was not sure whether the P sheet was a "cotype" or the holotype. BM isotype cited by Lauener (1980).
