Psychotria kaduana (Cham. & Schltdl.) Fosberg var. pubiflora (A. Heller) Fosberg, Brittonia 16: 265. 1964. Flora of the Hawaiian Islands --Basionym
Type Information
Straussia pubiflora A. Heller , Minnesota Bot. Stud. 1: 905 1897.
O`ahu: above Manoa, lower slope of Konahuanui, [heights of Pauoa]. 13 May 1895. A.A. Heller 2300.
Holotype [MIN]. Isotype(s) [A, BISH! [2], F, GH, MO!, NY, US!].

Note: non Psychotria pubiflora (A. Gray) Fosberg (1942). "Heights of Pauoa" was the locality cited by Heller, but was not found on any specimen labels from 13 May with that locality. Sohmer erroneously cited the US sheet as the holotype and the MIN sheet as an isotype. We have no evidence that any collections with this number were made on other dates.
