Bartels, Max, 1902-1943 b. Jun 7, 1902 Sukabumi (Java). d. Oct 6, 1943 Burma (evidently of malaria while in Japanese internment). Note: often referred to (incorrectly in my opinion) as "Max Bartels, Jr.". His father was "Max Bartels", but actually Max Eduard Gottlieb Bartels (1871-1936). So while the first and the last names are the same, the full names are not the same as no middle names are given for the son. By my reckoning he is not a "Jr.". Additionally I note that the taxa he described were published in 1938, after his father was deceased, so even if he had been referred to as "Jr." (by himself or others) it is not certain that he would still have been. This reasoning (such as it is) could be made problematic if, in fact, his name is listed as "M. Bartels, Jr." in the publications in question (not seen 2009.07.25).
