Transcription Notes:
Australia may not be correct. I can trace it to Oceana, but then Vanuatu and other locations confuse things. Since I can't read much Latin, and the translator isn't much better, I'll leave it as is. A perusal of JSTOR puts Bernardi in the area but no Crotons are attributed to him. @siobhanleachman - Erromanga is an island in the country of Vanuatu.
