#256 They called me Hymenophyllum holochilum, also known as Meringium merrillii, Hymenophyllum merrillii, Hymenophyllum boschii, and Hymenophyllum smithii. I pay homage to the male botanists Elmer Drew Merrill, Roelof Benjamin van den Bosch, and James Edward Smith, Johannes Jacobus Smith, Winifred Smith, Christo Albertyn Smith, Charles Piper Smith, Gerard Edwards Smith, Gilbert Morgan Smith, Henry George Smith, Hamilton Lanphere Smith, Albert Charles Smith, Alan Reid Smith, or William Wright Smith. They first catalogued me in 1905.
