Died: 11 Dec. 1871.



Is cited as the collector of Selaginella plana (Desv.) Hieron. from Timor.1 This rightly should be ex Herb. Lenormand.

Sebastian René Lenormand2 was the owner of an extensive herbarium, mainly consisting of Algae. He himself never left France, but bought extensively from collectors from all parts of the world. This was communicated too by M. Meslin of the University of Caen, Normandy, France, where the Lenormand Herbarium  is preserved, to Miss Agnes Chase in 1935. The plants distributed with Lenormand on the label are from the Lenormand Herbarium. Several in Herb. Paris [P].
