Webbia 8(2): 427-436

The importance of the large Malaysian botanical collections assembled by the Italian explorer Odoardo Beccari is pointed out, and technical data on Beccari's collections are given. They consist of about 3500 specimens of Cryptogams, 15,725 herbarium sheets of Phanerogams and Pteridophytes, of which 12,916 were collected by Beccari himself, and the others by d'Albertls, Forbes, Modigliani, Riedel, and others), 2400 flasks of material in liquid, and several original drawings. Together with this material diaries, original notes, manuscripts, and several parcels of correspondence are kept in the Herbarium Universitatis Florentinae. The herbarium specimens are numbered and marked with P. B. (Piante Bornensi. 4069 numbers), P. S. (Piante Sumatrane. 979 numbers), and P. P. (Piante Papuane. 986 numbers). The collections from other islands are not numbered. The specimens are copious, complete, and exceedingly well collected. Unfortunately only about 25% of these collections is probably revised. At the end of the paper the author give a list of the Malaysian aqutic plants collected by Beccari, and mentions some records of Malaysian plants based on the specimens collected by him.
