> “Etymology: We Watsons investigate and write up all our publications at
> home. We are retired on small pensions, belong to no institution, and work
> privately on a largely self-funded basis. In the past, we have visited the
> herbaria and libraries at K and SGO regularly, and once or occasionally B,
> CONC, LIL, MERL, P, SI, and ULS as well. But for various reasons we are
> very seldom able to travel to any these days, and have only managed two
> such visits in the last five years. So now, at the very apogee of our
> 'publication era', we are totally dependent on our indispensable home
> library and ... the Internet. Without the latter, we could literally
> achieve nothing of scientific relevance. It provides information from such
> a wide number of reference sources and personal contacts that it is
> impossible to even begin to think about listing them all. However, one is
> particularly outstanding in that we consult it constantly for information
> on a wide variety of subjects related to our work - Wikipedia, as cited
> herein for example. The best token return we can think of is to name a
> plant accordingly, so it therefore gives us pleasure to record our
> gratitude via the replacement epithet of this species, as a noun in
> apposition.”
