Data resource HO AVH data
Institution code Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery
Supplied institution code "HO"
Collection code Tasmanian Herbarium
Supplied collection code "HO"
Catalog number HO564033
Basis of record Preserved specimen
Preparations sheet
Identified by M.L. Baker
Identified date 2009
Collector Fergusson, A.
Record number s.n.
