#150 They called me Dicranopteris linearis, also known as Gleichenia hermannii, Dicranopteris hermannii, Mertensia lessonii, Gleichenia klotzschii, Mertensia klotzschii, Dicranopteris klotzschii, and Mertensia hermannii. I pay homage to the male botanists Paul Hermann, Pierre Adolphe Lesson, and Johann Friedrich Klotzsch. They first catalogued me in 1907.
