Scaevola sericea Vahl f. saintjohnii O. Deg. & I. Deg., in Degener, Taxon 10: 227. 1961.
Type information:
Holotype [?]. O. Degener and I. Degener 27313. 16 March 1961. Kaua`i: Omoe, [6 miles from ocean], in woods both sides of terminal ridge.750ft. Isotype(s) [BISH, US!].

Note: Degener did not cite any herbaria; presumably the holotype is at NY and the US sheet is an isotype, although the US sheet has "type" written in Degener's handwriting on it (Degener usually wrote "cotype" on labels of isotypes). If there is a sheet at NY, check whether Degener wrote "type" on label.
