In this revision of the nearly exclusively Malaysian genus Diplycosia Bl. 84 species and 12 varieties are distinguished, of which 17 new Malaysian species resp. 8 varieties and 2 extramalaysian species are described; 4 species have been reduced to varietal rank, 1 new name has been proposed. An index to specimens has been added. INTRODUCTION

With the gradual progress of exploration of Malaysia many new species have been described in the genus Diplycosia Bl., but no general treatment has ever been undertaken. It seemed therefore necessary to revise the genus to reach a satisfactory basis for 'Flora Malesiana'. Previous authors considered the genus to extend through Malaysia as far as the Eastern Himalaya and Burma. In the present revision it appears to be limited nearly completely to the proper Malaysian flora, with only three species (one of them endemic) in S. Siam and one endemic species in S. Annam. The bulk of the species is found in Borneo (especially on Mt Kinabalu) ; Sumatra, Celebes, and New Guinea show a less rich development. Many species are based on a single collection (20 spp.) or have a very restricted area (c. 47 spp.). In the course of this revision it has become evident, that Diplycosia cannot be further divided into sections, although some minor, apparently natural groups of species have been noticed. The division by Bentham & Hooker f., who distinguished two subgenera Eudiplycosia and Gaultheriopsis, based on the habit of three of the four species known in their time, is no longer tenable. The key to the species offered here is undoubtedly artificial in many respects. I have avoided — as far as possible — to use the finer differ* Flora Malesiana Foundation, Leyden. — 119 —

ences in the structure of the stamens which are difficult to handle in Diplycosia and have preferred to work mainly with the indument characters of the stems, leaves and flowers. The variation in the indumenttypes (well recognizable only by use of a lens), is rather large in the genus, but the indument types themselves are surprisingly constant in the species, a phenomenon similarly found in other genera of Ericaceae. Descriptions are given only of the new species and of those which fall outside the area covered by the 'Flora Malesiana'. My study has been based on herbarium specimens borrowed from the following institutions: Arnold Arboretum (A) Lae (LAE) Bogor (BO) Melbourne (MEL) Calcutta (CAL) New York (NY) Edinburgh (E) Manila (PNH) Florence (FI) Stockholm (S) Gray Herbarium (GH) Kuching (SAR) Kepong (KEP) Singapore (SING) Leiden (L) Utrecht (U) The material preserved in British Museum (BM) Kew (K) Paris (P) has been studied during a stay at London and Paris.

D. heterophylla Bl. As to the choice of the type-species, the following may be stated. Copeland f. I.c. 65 says, that "D. pilosa which Blume listed first, is to be LECTOTYPE SPECIES:

regarded as the type". From this arbitrary point of view he concludes that the classification by Bentham & Hooker f. into 2 subgenera "is to be rejected, because D. pilosa, the type, was included in subgen. Gaultheriopsis instead of in Eudiplycosia". I cannot agree with Copeland f. in selecting D. pilosa Bl. as the typespecies of Diplycosia, which for the reason he gives, was chosen by him in a purely mechanical way, not adopted in the rules. In contrary we have to follow Bentham & Hooker f., who anticipated what we call 'typification', when they divided the genus into one 'typical' part, i.e. subgen. Eudiplycosia, with D. latifolia Bl. and D. heterophylla Bl., and into one apparently 'non-typical', gaultheria-like part, i.e. subgen. Gaultheriopsis, with D. pilosa Bl. and "other not yet described species". Reasonably the typespecies of Diplycosia has to be chosen from subgen. Eudiplycosia. I therefore consider D. heterophylla Bl. as the type-species; D. latifolia Bl. is regarded in my work as a variety of it. KEY TO THE SPECIES
