career, Collecting localitiescollections:

P.W. Leenhouts found a specimen of Atalaya salicifolia collected in Timor, in Herb. Kew [K]. The specimen cited by Danser (see Cycl. Fl. Mal. 1, 1, 1950, p. 168a) is also at Kew. Probably both specimens were collected by the same man who possibly collected plants as a sideline only. At least no Flood is mentioned in the list of collectors whose plants are at Kew (Kew Bull. 1901, by B.D. Jackson). The zoological collector Flood of the early 20th century will have nothing to do with it.
