Assistant Surgeon on H.M.S. ‘Samarang’ (itinerary etc. see sub Capt. E. Belcher), author of some publications on this voyage,1 and numerous zoological papers. 


Collecting localities:

Evidently some botanical collections were made during the voyage, but the chief object was decidedly zoological. 



Plants from a certain Adams are preserved in Herb. Imp. Gard. St Petersb. (= Leningrad) [LE], no collecting locality known to us;2 probably not identical.
