#189 They called me Cyperus polystachyos, also known as Cyperus hartii, Cyperus dussii, Cyperus liebmannii, Cyperus gatesii, Cyperus boivinii, and Cyperus thouarsii. I pay homage to the male botanists Henry Chichester Hart, Duss (I couldn’t find his records), Liebmann (I couldn’t find his records), Gates (I couldn’t find his records), Thouars (I couldn’t find his records), and Joseph Robert Bernard Boivin, or Louis Hyacinthe Boivin. They first catalogued me in 1773.
