Nota general

Additional information

[Source - Chloe Rushovich for FHYA, 2020, transcription of KwaZulu-Natal Museum database extracts: Justine Wintjes 04/12/2019: Notes in the Accessions Register suggest that this Accession was created from the ones originally numbered 48 and 49 (comprising 15 specimens and possibly 1 specimen respectively), which were written off in June 1964, and apparently re-found and moved to Accessions 616 (2 but originally recorded as 3 specimens) and 690 (16 specimens) in 1906 (see note next to 616 in the Register). If this scenario is correct though, there is still an unresolved question around the
discrepancy in total number of specimens (18 or 19 across 616 and 690 instead of the ?16 across 48
and 49).

Mayr isn't recorded as the source for Accession no. 690 in the Accessions Register but Object 690C is
illustrated in Mayr's 1906 Annals publication (see refs): and it is plausible he published items he had
collected himself, and may by extension have been the source of the entire original set (16 specimens).

This Accession has been selected as part of the Mayr series by the Five-Hundred Year Archive.]
