Type information:
Neotype [BISH]. O. Degener 8615. Maui: woods above Olinda near Ukulele.
Neotypified in H. St. John. J. Arnold Arboretum 43: 420. 1962. Isoneotype(s) [MASS!].

Note: Syntypes: "O`ahu! Ka`ala; E. Maui! Hamakua (Lydg.)" -- all probably destroyed (former in B). Photo of O`ahu syntype BISH!. Borrow sheet from GH--if it is a Hillebrand collection from Ka`ala, then neotypification is superfluous.
