They do no longer have living plants or if they have, these are not
necessarily the original species but more recent accessions (maybe
_P.reticulata_!). They have the type specimen in the Herbarium, however. I
do not know if Rob Gardner is/was responsible for _P.kondoi_ at Chapel
Hill, but it may well be.

Kind regards
