Erik Leonard Ekman V

Henriettella ekmanii

WW1 broke out shortly after Erik Ekman arrived to the Swedish colony in Bayate, bringing chaos to the world. Ekman was quite happy to spend his time in a remote place on Cuba. Together with Johan August Nyström he summited Pico Turquino (1974 masl), the highest peak on Cuba, and there he collected, among other, a species of Henriettella that was later named efter him by his German collaborator Ignatz Urban (1848-1931).
