Erik Leonard Ekman

Pedicularis palustris

Erik Leonard Ekman (1883-1931) is well-known for his extensive collections from Cuba and Hispaniola (he collected some astounding 36000 numbers, of which many are types), and we will come back to him many times. But for the start, a Pedicularis opsiantha collected and described by him in Småland, Sweden, at the young age of 25. Today this name is considered a synonyme under Pedicularis palustris, but still recognised as a distinct subspecies (Swedish: höstspira).
