Dinesh ji
A good topic for your research. Did some one give wrong local name to Linnaeus??

"were there *two* many trifoliate specimens on Linnaeus' table ? !! "
I believe you meant TOO!!

Many times I have seen you and Tabish sir, explaining in a much
betterand sensible manner than most of the eminent botanist. You are
on dot and secondly, the time he named radiatus, may be he wasnt aware
of the other one which he described almost 12 years later. :)) so
simple......
I gave the details in other post......that you may like to check.....

You are just great and big asset for this group!!! Hats off to you!!
