Type Information
Euphorbia sparsiflora A. Heller , Minnesota Bot. Stud. 1: 846 1897.
Kaua`i, in and near bog at head of the Wahiawa River. 12 August 1895. Heller 2699.
Lectotype [US]. Isolectotype(s) [BISH! [5], F [2], GH, MO!, NY [mfc!],]. Lectotypified in W. L. Wagner & R. K. Shannon. Brittonia 51: 431. 1999.
Note: Collection 2699, pro parte. Additional syntypes collected at same locality on 21 August (P), and 19 October (CU, F [2], US!). Heller did not cite a date, and thus all are considered syntypes. MIN does not have this collection (A. F. Cholewa, pers. comm.), although Koutnik (1987) cited the holotype as being there. Heller distributed these collections as "E. wahiawae (ined.)". Wagner, W.L. & R.K. Shannon. 1999. Brittonia 51:422-438
