Dodonaea viscosa. See image source here.

#58 They called me Dodonaea viscosa, also known as Dodonaea ehrenbergii, Dodonaea viscosa f. ehrenbergii, Dodonaea eriocarpa var. forbesii, Dodonaea eriocarpa var. skottsbergii, Dodonaea eriocarpa var. hillebrandii, and Dodonaea eriocarpa var. sherffii. I pay homage to the male botanists Christian Gottfried Ehrenberg, Skottsberg (I couldn’t find his records), Sherff (I couldn’t find his records), William (Wilhelm) Hillebrand, or William Francis Hillebrand, and Charles Noyes Forbes, Edward Forbes, or Henry Ogg Forbes. They first catalogued me in 1760.
