Born: 1767, Durrach, Bavaria, Germany. Died: 1841, Malaga, Spain.



Collected Cyperus pallescens Desf. in Malacca. However, was certainly not in Malacca himself. He was a correspondent of Mertens, Agardh, Webb, etc. He collected extensively in Spain and exchanged materials with botanists outside Spain. The plants cited from Malacca must be cited either ex Herb. Haenseler, or more probably from Malaga!



With Herb. Swartzii in Herb. State Mus. Stockholm [S]; plants from Spain and Malacca in Herb. Copenhagen [C].
