Notes:
Ceylon Flora Project
Specimens 1103009, 1103010, and 1103011 previously had the coll. no. on their tags changed from 1763 to 1773. However, 1103012, 1103013, and 1103014 had not and the coll. no. on their tags is still 1763. The identification on the tags (1103012, 1103013, 1103014) is Bambusa vulgaris, not Cephalostachyum pergracile, which is the identification for 1103009-011. It is possible that 1103012, 1103013, and 1103014 were supposed to be changed to 1773, but were missed in the process. Or, it is possible that these are two separate collection events. An idenficiation of these specimens might help in determining this.
