    Notes : [Label note:] Isotype of Neotype.
    [Commentary ann.:] Although stated to be an "isotype of neotype" on the label, this specimen, Kral 2516, is not a type. It could possibly be a topotype, but that is not a certainty. Asimina tetramera was published in: Small, John K. 1926. A new pawpaw from Florida. Torreya 26: 56. The type as cited in the protologue is from "Ancient dunes, 'scrub,' near the estuary of the St. Lucie River, Florida". It was "collected by the writer near Rio, Florida" on 26 July 1924, presumably as Small s.n. According to Kral's revision (citation below), the holotype at NY is missing but he saw the isotypes at GH and US. Kral, Robert. 1960. A revision of Asimina and Deeringothamnus (Annonaceae). Brittonia 12(4): 233-278 (p. 259-261). If the holotype at NY does not surface, one of the isotypes may be selected as a lectotype. A neotype can not be selected. --Kent D. Perkins. 23 October 2006.
