Remarks

According to B. Verdcourt (Kew Bull. 45(3): 583, footnote. 1990): Although the usually very scholarly Hans Hallier originally spelt the epithet 'incomta' in both his publications and was followed by all other botanists who referred to it in print, several specimens had been written up as 'incompta' at Kew. Investigation showed that incomtus has no meaning in Latin, whereas incomptus can mean dishevelled, unkept, shaggy etc, and is obviously what Hallier meant to employ. Dr R. K. Brummitt gave his opinion that under Art. 73.1 of the Code the spelling may and indeed should be corrected.
