Colin Mills, compiler of the Hortus Camdenensis, died in late November 2012 after a short illness. As he always considered the Hortus his legacy, it is his family's intention to keep the site running in perpetuity. It will not, however, be updated in the near future.

Lonicera capitata [Macarthur]

I have found no reference to a plant of this name.  The specific name capitata suggests a species or variety with a distinct rounded head of flowers.
