MIQUEL cited this to occur in Malaya (Penang I.); on what grounds is uncertain. It must be a mystifica¬tion or mislocalisation of specimens. CLARKE (1893) did not mention this locality in Fl. Br. Ind.
In Herbarium Bogoriense VAN STEENIS, l.c., found specimens of E. comosum, said to have been collected in Karimata I. (off W. Borneo), mixed with specimens of Machaerina rubiginosa. This was interpreted as an unintentional mixture; E. comosum certainly does not occur in the low Karimata I.
