Burmannia coelestis Don from Malacca, without locality and s.n. in Herb. Boiss. (Geneva [G]), and Kew [K] (cf. Jonker: ‘Monograph of the Burmanniaceae’, Thesis 1938, p. 123).

Was mentioned in the Cyclopaedia (Fl. Mal. vol. 1) as a collector of Burmannia in Malacca, of which a specimen was in Herb. Boiss. (Geneva [G]). Recently Mr J. Sinclair from Singapore, when studying Annonaceae and Myristicaceae at Geneva, found quite a number of specimens from Lemann, collected in Malacca (Malay Peninsula). On the labels was also the name of W. Griffith. As several sets of the latter went to the late Dr Charles Morgan Lemann (1806-52) (cf. also Fl. Mal. I, 1, p. 201b), the facts are probably that one of Lemann’s sets went to Herb. Boiss. and that not Lemann, but Griffith is the collector.
