(also considered a synonym of E. pedunculare; see Melville, 1960), seems to be the real type of E. pedunculare. It is dated by 1834 and was collected by Richard Cunningham "between | Waimaté | & the great forest | of Hokianga | past [east?] the lake | New Zealand", which quite closely matches the protologue. We accept this specimen as the standing lectotype that first Allan (1961) and then Raven and Raven (1976) had in mind."
