TitleThe distribution of Korthalsella Dacrydii
JournalBlumea - Biodiversity, Evolution and Biogeography of Plants
AbstractKorthalsella Dacrydii (RIDLEY) DANSER, the only species of its genus that is parasitic on Conifers, was, up to the present, only known from two mountains, viz., Mt. Tahan in the Malay Peninsula, and Mt. Gede in Java. For the latter mountain it was, for the first time, not discovered in the living state, but, by Dr VAN STEENIS, on herbarium specimens of Podocarpus imbricata, collected by KOORDERS and VAN DER HOEVEN in 1890. Later it was collected several times on Mt. Gede in the living state.

The localities now known are the following.
