In our revision of Caprifoliaceae in Fl. Mal. I, 4 (1951) 175 seq. we omitted to mention Weigelia fallax described by Miquel from Lembang, West Java, collected by Korthals. The specimen was concealed among cultivated specimens and turned up recently. There is no doubt that this specimen is derived from an ornamental in the Javanese hills. We have sent this material to Prof. Hara who found it conspecific with Weigela coraeensis Thunb. It is often cultivated in Japan, especially as a hedge plant.
