#147 They called me Vavaea amicorum, also known as Vavaea lamii, Vavaea ledermannii, Vavaea brassii, Vavaea kajewskii, Vavaea chalmersii, and Beilschmiedia brassii. I pay homage to the male botanists Herman Johannes Lam, Ledermann (I couldn’t find his records), Brass (I couldn’t find his records), Kajewsk (I couldn’t find his records), and Chalmers (I couldn’t find his records). They first catalogued me in 1843.
