Notes: "Additional data — Woelkerling 1993: 112. Foslie (1900a: 32) subsequently treated gyrosa as a forma of L. dentatum. Collection includes one fragment in one small box marked ‘Fuess 47’ (referring to slide 47, made by Fuess & Co.) and fragments in a second small box marked ‘konc.? [= conceptacles?]’. Annotation slip in latter box marked ‘Tømte Konc.? [= empty conceptacles?]’. Grouped with A24-1440, two M’Calla collections of L. dentatum (A24-1417, A24-1418), and two M’Calla collections of L. dentatum f. macallana (A24-1442, A24- 1443) under one entry in Adey & Lebednik 1967: 45, who mistakenly list ‘1899’ as the collection date rather than the communication date. Adey & Lebednik (1967: 45) also indicated that 7 Roundstone boxes of M’Calla material occurred, but only 6 have been found]" (Woelkering et al. 2005: 198).
