Richard, A.

Is cited by Schumann (in Engl. Bot. Jahrb. 9, 1888, p. 189 seq.) as the collector of plants near Doré in NW. New Guinea, in consequence of some remarks made by F. von Mueller (in Descr. Not. Pap. Pl. p. 23, 46, etc.). Evidently he misinterpreted the latter who intended to refer the reader to the book of Richard on the collection of the expedition in ‘L’Astrolabe’ (cf. sub P.A. Lesson).
