Collector, sent to New Guinea by the Natural History Museum at Paris in 1890.


Collecting localities:

1890. SE. New Guinea: Mt Yule; Nikura and Nabuapaka (S. coast). Also plants from NE. New Guinea (New Britain). See Index Herb. Pt II (Regn. Veg. 86) 1972.



Probably at Paris [P], mainly zoological, but at all events mosses too.1 The latter in Herb. Bescherelle.
