Also included is a 14 page list of identifications for 123 specimens from Baracea, São Paulo, Brazil. The note "measured or recorded by DMC" is included in the top, right corner of the first page. The codes "o" for identification furnished to Vanzolini" and "+" for "not determined yet" are included. A number, possibly collector number, is included with the specimen names.
