Holotype of Clerodendrum kamhyoaeEdit

Hi Qgroom, welcome to Wikidata! According to A remarkable new species of Clerodendrum L. (Lamiaceae) from Madagascar (Q55231450) the holotype (MO-6684200 sheet 1!, MO-6684201 sheet 2!, MO-6684202 sheet 3!) of Clerodendrum kamhyoae (Q55231410) is held at Meise Botanic Garden (Q3052500). But using the search I can't find it. Any idea why? BTW: Good to know that the collection recently was published as a DwcA. Regards --Succu (talk) 19:09, 27 June 2018 (UTC)

I can't see how you're making this link, but the MO in the numbers means the types are at Missouri Botanical Garden (Q1852803). You can see one here http://www.tropicos.org/Image/100499102. It doesn't help that the paper muddles up Missouri barcode formats and Missouri accession numbers. However, they can perhaps be forgiven, because Missouri seem fairly muddled on which is which. How are you making the link with Meise Botanic Garden (Q3052500)? Qgroom (talk) 13:39, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, my fault. Scanning through the BR-DwCA I mixed up things somehow. Regards --Succu (talk) 17:39, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
