#207 They called me Pterocephalus plumosus, also known as Pterocephalus vaillantii, Cephalaria wallichii, Scabiosa willichii, and Trichera willichii. I pay homage to the male botanists Sébastien Vaillant, Willich (I couldn’t find his records), and George Charles Wallich, or Nathaniel Wallich. They first catalogued me in 1823.
