Lasses, M.


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



Is cited as the collector of Turraea billardieri Benn., no 32, from SE. New Guinea.1 The specimen is preserved in Herb. Decand. (Geneva [G]) (pres. by F. v. Mueller, Melbourne). As no other data concerning this collector are known to us, the label might have been misread, e.g. for W.G. Lawes, the initial M. standing for ‘Monsieur’.
