A field number is commonly used and adhered to indicate the location of a plant found in habitat. They have no officially recognized meaning. Hereunder a list of numbers consisting of field numbers and collection numbers.

The collection numbers should not be part of this list, however many of these numbers are circulating among amateurs therefore it seemed useful to mention them also.

The first two characters represents usually the initials of the field explorer, followed by a figure representing the sequential number of the plant found in habitat The added "A" means usually an insertion of a specie with a later discovered  divergence of its appearence.
