Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy According to Heron & Bradford-Grieve (1995) the taxonomic status of Oncaea heronae Malt is uncertain. Re-examination of the type material of the species by these authors have shown that MaltĀ“s original description was obviously based on two different species. The authors state that a re-examination of the species in question from fresh material would be needed in order to clarify the morphological inconsistencies.  [details]
