Background - Seven species of Pedicularis (P. batangensis, P. birostris, P. goniantha, P. microphyton, princeps, P. rhynchodonta and P. tatsienensis) described by Bureau & Franchet are based on collections made by Prince Henri d'Orleans in 1890. Because these specimens lack collection numbers Bureau & Franchet merely described their provenance in the protologue, which has created much subsequent difficulty for authors seeking to access the types.
