#441 They called me Micropholis guyanensis, also known as Mastichodendron williamsii, Pouteria piresii, Planchonella melinonii, Sideroxylon williamsii, Micropholis cowanii, Chrysophyllum melinonii, and Pouteria melinonii. I pay homage to the male botanists Pires (I couldn’t find his records), Melinon (I couldn’t find his records), John Macqueen Cowan, and Benjamin Samuel Williams, Ion James Muirhead Williams, Mark L. Williams, or Samuel Williams. They first catalogued me in 1891.
