#633 They called me Ipomoea cairica, also known as Ipomoea bouvetii, Batatas cavanillesii, Ipomoea jacquinii, Convolvulus cavanillesii, and Ipomoea cavanillesii. I pay homage to the male botanists Bouvet (I couldn’t find his records), Antonio José Cavanilles, and Nikolaus Joseph von Jacquin, or Joseph Franz von Jacquin. They first catalogued me in 1826.
