The Eponym Dictionary of Southern African Plants
Questions and Uncertainties


NOTE: The epithets listed below are included here because I either did not have enough or any confirmation of their derivation, and because they warrant further investigation. Some of them are the same as names in the main sections of the site, but I couldn't be sure that they weren't named for a different person who happens to have the same name. And I emphasize that names on this list may in fact commemorate places or other things and not people.
