In Herb. Vienna [W] (acq. with Herb. Reichenbach): orchids from Java. No collector in Java of that name is known to us; it may be Nicol Alexander Dalzell (1817, Edinburgh, Scotland; 1878, Edinburgh) who was in the employ of the Forest Service in the Prov. of Bombay, 1841-70; we do not know, whether the latter paid a visit to Java. His collection is at Kew [K].
