H. montivagum West New Guinea, Papua Province, Beaufort River, collector A. Pulle, #307 (1912.) This herbarium sheet was labelled H. streimannianum but was endorsed H. montivagum Huxley & Jebb in 1991 but this name is not used in their 2019 revision. http://data.biodiversitydata.nl/naturalis/specimen/L.2913589

Update. However, there is a mention of the collection Pulle 307 under H. ellipticum Merr & Perry which presumably is its current status. I quote “Pulle 307 reputedly comes from low altitude (80 m), and although this may be correct, it is also possible that the measure represents camp data rather than the actual collection site”. See Jebb & C. R. Huxley in The tuberous epiphytes of the Rubiaceae 7: a revision of the genus Hydnophytum, Blumea 64, p39. (2019.) Pulle 307 http://bioportal.naturalis.nl/specimen/L.2913588
