information:

About 1870, under Dr R.H.C.C. Scheffers direction, cataloguing of the herbarium collections at Buitenzorg was started by giving to each sheet a number preceded by H.B., the common abbreviation for Herbarium Bogoriense. Not only collections made by staff members and Indonesian employees of the Herbarium and Botanic Gardens were inserted, but plants collected by outsiders too, e.g. those of Beccari (only few) and Diepenhorst. Later the series was discontinued.
