Of Nongkodjadjar (G. Tengger, E. Java), owner of a nursery (cf. sub Buysman), sold sets of plants, collected by him in the neighbourhood.

Part of his ferns was elaborated by Rosenstock.3

Some plants were named after him (cf. Backer, Verkl. Woordenb., 1936).


Collecting localities:

190. -191 .. E. Java: principally on G. Tengger, also on G. Kawi; Centr. Java: Poerwodadi.-According to Miss Koster,1 he collected on P. Alkmaar (the locality Alkmaar is the sugar factory (s.f.) of that name in E. Java) in the Bay of Batavia, W. Java; as nearly all of the collecting was done in E. Java, it seems rather out of the way, the locality might be the s.f. Alkmaar in E. Java.



About 1200 nos, probably in many specimens. Herb. Stockholm [S]: Tengger plants; Herb. Berl. [B]: 50 nos of ferns and 223 siphonogams; Herb. Bog. [BO]; Herb. Leiden [L]: Java ferns and phanerogams (purch. from C. Müller); Herb. Wageningen [WAG]: 98 phaner. and 112 ferns G. Tengger (coll. 1910-13) (purch. from C. Müller); Herb. Unity. Amsterdam [AMD]: ‘Herb. javan. (purch. from C. Müller); Herb. Bonaparte (= Paris [P]): Java ferns;2 Herb. Deless. (Geneva [G]): 160 nos from Java (purch. 1922/ 23); U.S. Nat. Herb. Wash. [US]: 237 Java plants, incl. 143 Filices Javae exsicc. Rosenstock; Herb. Turin [TO]: 14 Java ferns; several fern dupl. in Herb. Sydney [NSW].  Some dupl. in Herb. Brit. Mus. [BM]. Java plants (1906) in Herb. Edinb. [E].

As he sold sets of plants, they are likely elsewhere too. In the years 1925/26 Tengger plants were offered for sale by Th.Osw. Weigel; in his advertisement no collector’s name was mentioned, but it seems probable that the plants were collected by Mousset.
