Mr Harry Corbyn Levinge (1831-11/1896) of Knock Drin Castle, Mulligar, J.P, D.L. Spent many years in the Indian Civil Service [Bengal], where he collected ferns; particularly in Sikkim and Kashmir. Unfortunately much of his collection was destroyed in a fire. On his return, he interested himself in the Irish flora and contributed a number of important papers on this topic to the Irish Naturalist and the J of Botany (1892). Published "The plants of Westmeath" in 1894. The fern Adiantum levinge was dedicated to him by J G Baker. His herbarium is now housed in the National Museum in Dublin. image:Levinge1.jpg image:Levinge2.jpg Further info : see http://www.botanicgardens.ie/herb/books/inltos.htm and http://www.archive.org/stream/journalofbotanyb34trim#page/240/mode/1up/search/leving; http://www.archive.org/stream/journalofbotanyb30londuoft#page/194/mode/1up/search/levinge[i][/i]
