Type Information
Basionym: Lipochaeta kamolensis O. Deg. & Sherff , in Sherff, Amer. J. Bot. 38: 63 1951.
Maui, [southernmost central East Maui], Kamole Gulch, among lantana and grass on sides of gulch. 21 December 1948. Degener et al. 19288.
Holotype [F]. Isotype(s) [B, BISH, BM, CM, CU, F [photo F!], G-DEL, GH, K, LA, M, MO! [2], NY, P, PH, US! [2]].
Note: Two photos of F isotype at BISH; there is a photo at US labeled by Sherff as being a photo of an isotype, but it is not known what institution the corresponding isotype is at. There may be more isotypes; Sherff adds "etc." to the list of herbaria. Gardner's lectotypification (1979) on the GH sheet is entirely superfluous; he does not even cite any F sheets. RKS examined mfc of NY sheet (12/97).
