Notes
[Additional notes from lists held by LIVCM.] H. abjecta Lowe var subdepressa Lowe Porto Santo CT. Preston's hand according to N. F. McMillan 7.11.1988. The var is only a manuscript name according to N. F. McMillan on 1.10.1990 but it seems reasonable to presume that they were part of the original type lot for the species and later looked at again and given a varietal name that was never published (Idea from Ian Wallace 28.2.2001)
