Much as I indicated with the holotype, it is important that the collection number is modified. This is an isotype, and sheet 2 of a two sheet specimen, that should be 'Chandler 281 bis'.

It is important that the collection number is modified. Although Ross-Craig indicated that the type collection had no number, subsequent annotation of the sheet, and the label on the side, indicates it was eventually labelled as 'Chandler 281 bis. This is the holotype sheet, annotated by Ross-Craig simply as 'TYPE'.

This specimen is not a type of Pinguicula grandiflora Lam. subsp. rosea Mutel, a type specimen (holotype?) for this taxon is held at G-DC [00147857]. It is a specimen collected by Mutel on July 4, 1831.

This is quite clearly numbered 'Herb. Impérial du Brésil No. 882'! It is also numbered 'd. 992' - Sellow's collecting number - allowing the material to be localized fairly precisely on Sellow's itinerary.

I think something has become corrupted here! The image is clearly of a Tanacetum (= Pyrethrum), and not of a Bang collection of Pectis from Bolivia! I recommend that the link to the image is updated.

Unfortunately this collection is Mandon 253, not 263. It is however not a type but material upon which Schultz Bipontinus based the name Eupatorium nemorense in Bull. Soc. Bot. France 12: 81 (1865) - a nom. nud. The present currently accepted name for this material is Lorentzianthus viscidus (Hook. & Arn.) R. M. King & H. Rob.

JSTOR Global Plants "Powell, Thomas (1809-1887)" - Death Year Incorrect. Additional information: In their catalogue of his work, the SOAS University of London give Powell's date of birth as 1817.

JSTOR Global Plants "Powell, Thomas (1809-1887)" - Minor suggestion of wording change in article. Powell recorded the beliefs of the indigenous people of Samoa before they became diluted by the work of the missionaries. In the article a reference is made to these being folk "myths" and today this word is often associated with untruths. Thomas Powell used the word "legends" and perhaps this word would be more appropriate than myths. See detail wording from his will https://www.flickr.com/photos/sidpickle/23978345981/in/dateposted-public/

JSTOR Global Plants "Powell, Thomas (1809-1887)" - Death Year Incorrect. Powell's year of birth was 1817 and not 1809. References for this include death notice in newspapers, gravestone, and a paper prepared by Karen v. Armstrong, Ph.D. (Universiity of Helsinki) page 27. Titled “A Time Line of Missionaries Events and Buildings on Tutuila Samoa, 1830-1910” see http://ashpo.com/downloads/TutuilaMission1910.pdf. Gravestone can be seen at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=powell&GSfn=thomas&GSbyrel=all&GSdy=1887&GSdyrel=in&GScntry=5&GSob=n&GRid=65137625&df=all& Register of deaths with his names and age can be seen at https://www.flickr.com/photos/sidpickle/23244182584/in/dateposted-public/ The confusion probably came about due to another author - Thomas Powell(1809-1887) - who lived in London but moved to America in about 1849. He wrote poems and plays and moved into journalism in later life. He is probably best remembered for his dispute with Charles Dickens.

Regrettably the collector of this material has been somewhat misinterpreted, especially since this is an Oersted collection - Gardner never collected outside of Brazil in the New World. See Vidensk. Meddel. Foren Kjoben. 1852[1853]: 82 for these collections!

The collector of the type is a Cl[aude?] Bernard, according to Boissier and Reuter. P[ierre] F[rédéric] Bernard died in 1825 making a collection by him in 1841 impossible.

The collector seems more likely to be FJF Meyen, who collected in China during the world voyage of the Prinzess Luise 1830-32. His specimens were in the Albert Prager Herbarium, which was ultimately bought for CAS. This would then make it a syntype of R. chinensis.

Hallo Deirdre! Not to worry as I have the letter from Sharples about my grandfather, Lawrence Lewton-Brain (LLB in his letter!). It made me laugh because I know that I have inherited his trait of being "a fly in the ointment"! Physio in Bulle, Switzerland, I've learned that I frighten the local doctors here...Thank you for getting back to me. Is there any info I can give to your site that might be relevant? Best wishes to you, Didi (Deirdre the Queen of Sorrows, Didi in Hindustani - elder sister, in Hebrew beloved! Prefer that to being a Queen of Sorrows!)
