A herbarium collected by H. E. van Rijgersma in the Caribbean island St. Martin 1865–1868 and 1875 has been found at the Swedish Museum of Natural History (S), Stockholm. The other known collection of van Rijgersma's plants was housed in Berlin (B), but was destroyed in World War II. Specimens collected by him are also kept in Leiden (L). Many of the Stockholm sheets have original illustrations by van Rijgersma in either black and white or in full watercolour, or both. A checklist of specimens and illustrations is presented at http://www.nrm.se/fbo/hist/rijgersma/rijgersma.html.en
