Andy,

Richard Crawshay was a mycologist, not a botanist - if you believe the world is populated by plants and animals then the fungi are 'honorary' animals ... so he was a zoologist.

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?
