I have been working on bacterial gall formation in the genus Prionitis and
have come across an herbarium specimen of "Parangtritis" aka Prionitis
wentii Weber-van Bosse collected from Java in 1927. This specimen, and
several others I have subsequently encountered, have obvious galls on
I was wondering if anyone could put me in touch with a marine
botanist/phycologist (even an invert person!) from that part of the world.
I would really like to try and obtain a specimen.
Thanks very much!
