Type Information
Notes: Noro et al. (1995: 3) note that S. henslowianum was originally recognized by C.A. Agardh and a description published by J.G. Agardh (1889). They also note that as no type material for this species has been located in the Agardh Herbarium at Lund, Macao was proposed as the type locality of this species (Setchell 1936) but neotypification based on the specimens collected in Macao is needed. According to Tseng & Lu (1992: 27), Macao is the type locality.
