Council of Heads of Australasian Herbaria
Sent to Brisbane, Queensland, in 1863 as a paid collector for the Godeffroy Museum in Hamburg, she spent the next 10 years making extensive plant, animal and anthropological collections. She was based for a time in Bowen, Brisbane, Gladstone, Mackay and Rockhampton, and travelled at least short distances inland. Her collections formed the basis of Zur Flora von Queensland by C.Luerssen (J. Mus. Godeffroy 3: 1-22 (1873) & 3: 233-254 (1875)) and of Domin's works.
Her main collection is housed at HBG, but a set of duplicates was presented to Domin. Of the new taxa published by Domin, the specimen at PR should be considered the holotype, that at HBG the isotype (Kanis, 1977). A number of duplicates are also in MEL, donated by HBG in the 1970s. Some others may have been sent to Mueller directly by Dietrich, and material is also in B, BM, BRSL, JE, K, L, MO, P, US and W.
