#371 They called me Trema orientalis, also known as Sponia commersonii, Celtis commersonii, Trema wightii, Colubrina leschenaultii, Trema commersonii, and Sponia wightii. I pay homage to the male botanists Commerson (I couldn’t find his records), Leschenault (I couldn’t find his records), and Robert Wight, or William Franklin Wight. They first catalogued me in 1856.
