#527 They called me Acalypha poiretii, also known as Ricinocarpus poiretii, Acalypha williamsii, and Gymnalypha jacquinii. I pay homage to the male botanists Poiret (I couldn’t find his records), Nikolaus Joseph von Jacquin, or Joseph Franz von Jacquin, and Benjamin Samuel Williams, Ion James Muirhead Williams, Mark L. Williams, or Samuel Williams. They first catalogued me in 1826.
