Lysimachiopsis helleri (R. Knuth) O. Deg. & I. Deg. , Pl. Hawaii Natl. Parks, ed. 3 (*). 1983.
Flora of the Hawaiian Islands --Basionym Type Information Lysimachia hillebrandii Hook. f. ex A. Gray var. helleri R. Knuth, in Pax & Knuth, Pflanzenr. IV. 237 (Heft 22): 310 1905.
Kaua`i: on the Hanapepe Watershed, ridge W of Hanapepe River. 3000 ft. 23 July 1895. A.A. Heller 2614.
[US!]. Lectotypified in H. St. John. Phytologia 64: 45. 1987.
Note: Collection 2614, pro parte. The holotype at B was destroyed in World War II. Knuth did not cite a date, nor did Heller. Two collections made on different dates were distributed under Heller 2614, the 23 July collection used as the type of L. hanapepeensis (for which St. John added an an "A" to some of the sheets) and the US specimen, which is dated 22 August (an additional syntype). It seems odd that St. John would use a duplicate of the 23 July collection as the lectotype rather than one of the 22 August sheets, but perhaps he thought the 23 July collection was mixed material. Possible isolectotypes: MO, P. For unknown reasons Marr and Bohm (1997) include this name as a nomenclatural synonym of L. kalalauensis, which is based on a different type.
