It should say:

                             +----------+--------+--+-------+
                        DB = |  lHash   |   PS   |01|   M   |

                                            |
                  +----------+              V
                  |   seed   |--> MGF ---> xor
                  +----------+              |
                        |                   |
               +--+     V                   |
               |00|    xor <----- MGF <-----|
               +--+     |                   |
                 |      |                   |
                 V      V                   V
               +--+----------+------------------------------+
