N.B. reporting of the edit history is currently fairly unclear and misleading. Most edits made to specimens appear as a pair of 'add' and 'delete' entries, which may not be together in the list. There are also often 'minor' edits, which are made automatically (rather than due to user activity), for example to merge synonym names.

Although this sheet and have been attributed to Ley I can find no evidence that he was ever in VC91, whereas Wilkinson was there on the day in question. Their handwriting is very similar, and it would have been difficult for Ley to get there and back to fit in with other gatherings from Hfds before and after this date!
