Nomenclatural notes
From Wood 1965 p. 579: The name N. muthnatae was originally spelles incorrect by the writer (1962:20) to N. mathuatae. The explanation is thst the species was named for Mathuana Island (Mathuata-i-wai), a small island just off Vanua Levu, Fiji. Why Allen misspelled mathuata can be understodd by examinein the handwritten labels of the type (US) in which the top of the "a" is open, and "a" and "u" would be easily misinterpreted for one another or for "n". - (20 Apr 2010) -
