Notes: On calcareous rocks (Lipkin & Silva 2002). According to Womersley & Bailey (1970: 288): "The type in MEL (26389) consists of two paper-mounted specimens and one (plus fragments) mica mount, together with Sonder's sketches, and labelled 'Planta a cl. Zollingero lecta. no. 3428, Bima, Ins. Sumbawa." The specimens are all of one taxon and not a mixture as Setchell (1924, p. 170) suspected."
