Very recently Baranova & Leroy (Leroy, 1978) published a new genus Takhtajania to accomodate the aberrant Bubbia perrieri Capuron. The outstanding characters of this genus are the anomocytic stomatal apparatus (Baranova, 1972; Bongers, 1973) and the unilocular bicarpellate ovary (Leroy, 1977, 1978). During my work on the Winteraceae, I also studied the single specimen of Bubbia perrieri in existence. The late Capuron told me that he had tried to collect additional specimens but that he had not succeeded in doing so; according to him the type locality was completely deforested. In view of the scarcity of the material it was considered relevant to publish some additional notes without delay.
