No family name, but the German translation of forester; probably an official of the D.E. Indian Forest Service stationed in Flores (Lesser Sunda Isls), who collected in June 1928 in the mountainous region N of Endeh, at the instigation and on behalf of Mrs I. Rensch (see there).



Herb. Berl. [B]: > 277 nos in a very poor state, only 50 of them fit for identification. Evidently the collection was numbered separately (No 1-seq.) from that of Mrs Rensch, but is cited by Mrs Rensch as Rensch no ... and by von Malm (for both references cf. liter. sub Mrs Rensch) as no ... comm. Rensch; e.g. Rensch 277 is a Desmodium (collected by Mrs Rensch herself in Lombok) and another Rensch 277 is Archidendron harmsii (collected by ‘Förster’ in Flores) (cf. Notizbl. Berl. Dahl. 11, 1932, p. 629).
