Abstract

http://dx.doi.org/)

The Humboldt & Bonpland type collection of the name Phaedranassa multiflora (now Rauhia multiflora) from Peru, located only in the general herbarium at Berlin-Dahlem, is notable for the presence of two field labels and various annotations. New insight in its history of identification and publication is provided by comparison with Bonpland's field book entry and Kunth's protologue. Further notes on the genus Rauhia are presented.
