Abstract

http://dx.doi.org/)

The enigmatic secondary or actual author, depending on the nomenclatural view taken, of Sitodium altile (Moraceae) and Aniotum fagiferum (Fabaceae), hitherto only known by his initial “Z” is identified as Friedrich August Zorn von Plobsheim (1711–89), an elusive naturalist from Danzig (Gdánsk), whose biography is briefly outlined.
