The Swedish Museum of Natural History in Stockholm (S) acquired the greater part of J. G. C. Lehmann's private herbarium in 1860-61 and O. W. Sonder's South African collection in 1875. Type specimens for the early volumes of Flora capensis are to be sought in Stockholm whenever "Herb. Sond." is cited, although substantial sets of duplicates, or fragments, exist in Lyon (LY) and Melbourne (MEL). The most complete Ecklon & Zeyher collection, including the unicates, is also in S, where lectotypification of Ecklon & Zeyher's taxa is recommended. Statistics for the genera Aspalathus and Crassula are provided as evidence. Because of these early acquisitions, the Stockholm herbarium also contains various other original specimens, e.g. from J. G. C. Lehmann (including his Hepaticae), C. G. D. Nees von Esenbeck, E. Meyer, F. Buchenau and G. Bentham.
