Scientific Name:Aiouea schwackeana Mez
Discussion:Doubtful Species

The type of this species was destroyed in Berlin. Mez’ description and his remark “peraffinis ... A. severing (A. severini Mez, Jahrb. Konigl. Bot. Gart. Berlin 5: 31. 1889) suggest that A. schwackeana is conspecific with A. bracteata Kostermans (sp. no. 9) and would then be the correct name for that species. However, I hesitate to change the names as there is some chance that a syntype may become known and the affinities of this species properly ascertained.
