#4 They called me Carissa spinarum, also known as Carissa dalzellii, Carissa brownii, Damnacanthus esquirolii, and Arduina campenonii. I pay homage to the male botanists Dalzell (I couldn’t find his records), Esquirol (I couldn’t find his records), Campenon (I couldn’t find his records), and Robert Brown, Clair Alan Brown, Nicholas Edward Brown, Addison Brown, Andrew Phillip Brown, or William Brown. They first catalogued me in 1771.
