In working up the materials of the genera Anaphalis, Gnaphalium and Blumea for Backer’s “Flora van Java” some new species, varieties and forms have come to light. The results of this work can by far not be considered to be complete, as the great lot of specimens collected in Java belonging to the genera under consideration are preserved in the “Herbarium van’s Lands Plantentuin te Buitenzorg”. Owing to the war these specimens were not available as yet. However, it may be useful to publish the novelties hitherto discovered.
