Note: St. John's lectotypification (Pacific Science 28: 458. 1974 ) was superfluous. Skottsberg mentioned three collections in the protologue, but segregated his number 1947 in a separate paragraph and compared it to other collections. He referred to "the type specimen" in the next paragraph, and wrote "type" on the collection label.
