#385 They called me Manilkara bidentata, also known as Manilkara balata var. schomburgkii, Mimusops balata var. schomburgkii, Manilkara williamsii, Manilkara balata var. hartii, Mimusops balata var. hartii, Mimusops commersonii, Kaukenia commersonii, and Imbricaria commersonii. I pay homage to the male botanists Moritz Richard Schomburgk, Henry Chichester Hart, Commerson (I couldn’t find his records), and Benjamin Samuel Williams, Ion James Muirhead Williams, Mark L. Williams, or Samuel Williams. They first catalogued me in 1932.
