Erato polymnioides DC., Prodr. 5: 318 (1836). Type: K in Peruviae montanis oronocensibus legit cl. Haenke. ... (v.s. in h. Haenk cl. Sternberg miss.). Holotype: PR; isotype: G-DC. Note: the 'specimen in G-DC bears no indication it is from Haenke, and is of one large mature leaf and associated node, together with a flowering shoot and its two associated leaves. Moran & Funk (2006: 604) note an apparent collecting number of the holotype in G-DC, 8161, which is merely a number given to the sheet during the microfiching of the de Candolle Prodromus collection. This sheet clearly doesnt bear all of the information in the Prodromus, and clearly ignores the fact that de Candolle saw material in Haenkes herbarium.
