Kaempferia attapeuensis Picheans. & Koonterm, Taiwania 54(3): 221. 2009. 

Type.

Lao PDR, Attapeu Province, Ban Oudomxay, 14°45.167'N, 106°60.415'E (sic), alt. 80 m, 5 Jul 2007, C. Picheansoonthon & S. Koonterm 123 (holotype BKF; isotypes: BK, SING). Lao PDR, Attapeu Province, Xaysettha District, Ban Touy, 14°50.305'N, 106°57.51'E, 113 m alt., 20 Jun 2016, O. Insisiengmay OI-141 (neotype: HNL, designated here; isoneotypes: E (with spirit collection), P (with spirit collection)).

Note.

The original material comprises the type and one further collection, Picheansoonthon & Koonterm 229 (BKF, n.v.), from Ban Kasome, Attapeu Province, 14°50.167'N, 106°57.515'E, alt. 88 m, 5 Jul 2008. The GPS coordinates of the holotype locality are in error (there are only 60 minutes in a degree so the longitude given is impossible) and, furthermore, Ban Oudomxay cannot be traced in Attapeu. The paratype locality, Ban Kasome, exists and a small collection (OI-146) matching the protologue was made there in June 2016. A larger, identical collection (OI-141) was made at a nearby locality and it is this which is designated here as neotype.
