Jun 20/07

= Cuscuta indecora Choisy var. indecora

From Holotype at MO: U.S.A. TEXAS. [Harris Co.]: Galveston, Galveston Island, May 1843, Lindheimer 124  (Isotypes at MO, NY and US). 

This collection was considered by Yuncker and myself the type of C. neuropetala Engelm. Walter Kittredge from Harvard Herbaria found that this is in fact the type of C. neuropetala var. littoralis. Thanks for letting me know Walter!
