COSTACEAE.  During routine correspondence with Reinaldo Aguilar regarding an anomalous Costus specimen, Manual co-PI Barry Hammel chanced to notice an apparent error in the description of C. pulverulentus C. Presl:  the parenthetical maximum for the ligule length should presumably be 2.5 cm, rather than 25 cm.

LAURACEAE.  Family specialist Henk van der Werff (MO) has discovered another vexatious order-of-magnitude error, this time in couplet 9 of the Licaria sp. key:  "las válvulas" certainly do not measure "4–6 mm," more likely 0.4–0.6 mm.  He also points out that Licaria sp. 2 (soon to get a real name) is not in fact endemic to Costa Rica, but also occurs in Panama.

ORCHIDACEAE.  Here is a reference that ought to have been cited in the Manual Orchidaceae treatment, under the genus indicated in its title:

Barringer, K.  1991.  A revision of Epidendrum subgenus Epidanthus (Orchidaceae).  Brittonia 43: 240–252.

ERRATUM.  In the wood-wafer version of our April edition, we neglected to change the issue number in the masthead.  It was Number 2, of course.
