Ledru, J.B.


(Source: Flora Malesiana ser. 1, 1: Cyclopaedia of collectors)



Collected mosses at Pontianak in W. Borneo (July 1897), which are evidently at Geneva [G];1 7 duplicates at Leningrad (Bot. Gard.) [LE], and possibly at Kew [K].2

He is not to be confused with André Pierre Ledru, naturalist attached to Baudin’s 2nd expedition 1796-98 (see sub Baudin), which did not operate in Malaysian waters.
