Over on Wikispecies:


we have been trying to determine whether Richard Crawshay the botanist
(Standard IPNI form: Crawshay) is the same person as Captain Richard
Crawshay, the ornithologist. It seems likely, but is not proven.

Can anyone add to the evidence there? Does anyone have a copy of the
former's 'The Spore Ornamentation of Russulas'? Or of Harold Fletcher
(1965) 'The story of the Royal Horticultural Society, 1804-1968, page
205 of which may hold the answer?
