The type of Peperomia hernandiifolia (Vahl) A.Dietr. (basionym Piper
hernandiifolium Vahl) is usually cited with an 'anonymous' collector.
However, apparently the oldest label on the holotype sheet (see TRGP at
http://www.peperomia.net/repertory.asp) mentions a name that reads like
'Zinneman' or something close. Is anybody familiar with a plant collector
with that name in the West Indies at the end of the 18th century (Vahl
published his species in 1804)?
