Darwin (attributive); used in taxonomic names for organisms having English names of the form "Darwin's ..."
Origin of darwinii
Named in a pseudo-Latin manner for Charles Darwin.
- Pteronema darwinii.
hyalina, Hartea elegans, and Monoxenia Darwinii; but it is doubtful whether these are not the young forms of colonies.
Still, as in the laburnum just mentioned, in the variegated jasmine and in Abutilon Darwinii, in the copper beech and in the horse-chestnut, the influence of a variegated scion has occasionally shown itself in the production from the stock of variegated shoots.
