#789 They called me Tabernaemontana rostrata, also known as Ervatamia curtisii, Ervatamia evrardii, Ervatamia pitardii, Tabernaemontana evrardii, and Tabernaemontana pitardii. I pay homage to the male botanists Evrard (I couldn’t find his records), Pitard (I couldn’t find his records), and Charles Curtis, Carlton Clarence Curtis, Charles Henry Curtis, William Curtis, or Moses Ashley Curtis. They first catalogued me in 1829.
