When delimiting the area to be dealt with in this paper, it appeared, on the one hand, desirable to include some adjacent regions, such as the Malay Peninsula, North Borneo, Eastern New Guinea, the Bismarck Archipelago, and the Solomon Islands; on the other hand the war made it impossible to obtain herbarium materials from several Herbaria in Europe and the Tropics, and to elaborate the genus Podocarpus for the whole of Malaysia. Especially the Philippine Islands could not be taken into consideration, but the few materials I had the opportunity of examining have been included. I believe this treatment of the genus Podocarpus is rather complete for the Netherlands Indies proper. The specimens which I could examine in Groningen were lent by the Directors of the following Herbaria: (B) = the Herbarium of the Botanic Garden, Buitenzorg. (BD) = the Herbarium of the Botanical Museum, Berlin-Dahlem. (G) = the Herbarium of the University, Groningen. (L) = the National Herbarium (Rijksherbarium), Leiden. (Pa) = the Herbarium of the Sugar Experiment Station, Pasoeroean. (S) = the Herbarium of the Botanic Garden, Singapore. (U) = the Herbarium of the University, Utrecht. (W) = the Herbarium of the University College of Agriculture, Wageningen.
