#556 They called me Bolbitis quoyana, also known as Poecilopteris smithii, Gymnopteris naumannii, and Bolbitis naumannii. I pay homage to the male botanists Naumann (I couldn’t find his records), and James Edward Smith, Johannes Jacobus Smith, Winifred Smith, Christo Albertyn Smith, Charles Piper Smith, Gerard Edwards Smith, Gilbert Morgan Smith, Henry George Smith, Hamilton Lanphere Smith, Albert Charles Smith, Alan Reid Smith, or William Wright Smith. They first catalogued me in 1934.
