Physician who took part in the circumnavigation of the world by Hagemeister from 1828-30.1 His voyage with Capt. Hagemeister was made in the ‘Krotky’.



Lipsky2 mentions his collections together with those of I. Stewart, but it seems evident that they took part in different expeditions. As yet I do not know the route followed by Hagemeister’s expedition; it is certain that the Marshall Islands were visited. 

Collections in Herb. Leningrad [LE].
