Flora of the Hawaiian Islands --Basionym Type Information
Note: Brown cited 3 "reference types", each from a different island. Fosberg & Sachet (1975) did not use F. Brown's name Rapanea myricifolia f. marquesensis as a basionym for Myrsine adamsonii because "because he designated no type and gave no characters that could be used to tell what he had in mind"
