Type Information
Sicyos lasiocephalus Skottsb. , Acta Horti Gothob. 10: 184 1936.
Hawai`i, N Kona, along road near Huehue, on `a`a lava. 26 September 1926. Skottsberg 1947.
Holotype [GB]. Isotype(s) [BISH!].
Note: St. John's lectotypification (Pacific Science 28: 458. 1974 [1975]) 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.
