Myrsine hosakae Wilbur , Pacific Sci. 19: 522. 1965. Flora of the Hawaiian Islands --Basionym
Type Information
Suttonia angustifolia Mez , Pflanzenr. IV. 236 (Heft 9): 337 1902.
Kaua`i: bog at head of Wahiawa Valley. 12 August 1895. A.A. Heller 2700.
Lectotype [US]. Isolectotype(s) [BISH! [5]]. Lectotypified in W. L. Wagner & R. K. Shannon. Brittonia 51: 433. 1999.

Note: Collection 2700, pro parte. An earlier Lectotype was designated by Hosaka (Occas. Pap. Bernice P. Bishop Mus. 16(2): 45. 1940): B [presumably destroyed]. As this lectotype was destroyed, a new one is here selected. Published as S. angustifolia (Heller) Mez, based on Myrsine angustifolia Heller, but there is no such basionym; Heller cites this collection under his combination Myrsine lanceolata (Wawra) Heller. At least some of the specimens were distributed with the name M. tenuifolia (ined.). Additional syntype: O`ahu, Remy 462 (Herb. Boiss-Bareby, L, P). Hosaka (1940, p. 45) thought that the specimen Mez saw was probably at B. Another collection distributed as Heller 2700 was made 19 October (US!), and is not an isolectotype. There was no MIN sheet of this number included in the loan to us. The only specimens Hosaka saw were sheets at BISH.
