That was already covered: it would not matter.

The type must be indicated in the protologue (the "original publication").
As this identification of this single specimen, or illustration, (Art 8.1)
must be effectively published it does not matter what exactly is deposited 
at Ulm, or what is written on the herbarium sheet.
