Species Hoodia currorii
Pictures from Observations
Probably for Dr William Chamberlain Hood (1790–1879), British surgeon who lived in South Lambeth, London, and collected succulents.
For Andrew Beveridge Curror (1811–1843), Scottish surgeon, served in the royal navy on HMS Water-Witch, plant collector in Angola in 1839–1843. Records show that he travelled to the rarely visited island of Annobón in the Gulf of Guinea about 400km from Gabon where he collected two specimens sometime between 1839–1842. Little else is known about him.
