  • Bulusan MT.; Mindoro, P.I. Calapan; P. de Mesa collector
  • Locality Remarks:
  • There is a barangay (neighborhood) called Bulusan in the city of Calapan, which abuts a prominent ridge/mountain. This is more likely to be the true locality of these specimens than the similarly-named Mount Bulusan, which is on Luzon in the Bicol Region in the province of Sorsogon. -RLHSipe and DJLohman, 2022-05-16
