Notes. – A specimen in the Java herbarium is in L (L-898.111-57). It represents material of Plumeria rubra L. (see Nat. Hist. II(2): 178. 1774) ( Fig. 2 View Fig ). Two leaves and an inflorescence are mounted with a mid-18th century pot, so far only known from this sheet (G. Thijsse, pers. comm. to the first author). Another specimen without provenance is present in the Thunberg herbarium (UPS-THUNB n° 6128).
