Chamaesyce celastroides (Boiss.) Croizat & O. Deg. var. humbertii O. Deg. & I. Deg., Fl. Hawaiiensis, fam. 190. Euphorbiaceae. 1959. Flora of the Hawaiian Islands --Basionym
Type Information
Euphorbia celastroides Boiss. var. humbertii Sherff, Bot. Gaz. (Crawfordsville) 97: 596 1936.
Kaua`i. 1851- 1855. J. Rémy 595.
Holotype [GH]. Isotype(s) [BISH?, GH, P [2 sheets]].

Note: Additional syntype: Remy 595, Ni`ihau. Koutnik made the Ni`ihau collection the lectotype of E. celastroides. Although Boissier did not cite numbers for the Remy collections, it is presumed that they are both number 595. The BISH sheet has neither locality nor number on it, so it cannot be determined whether it is an isolectotype of E. celastroides or an isotype of E. celastroides var. humbertii, if either (RKS, 8/95). Koutnik, D.L. 1987. Allertonia 4:331-388
