La. neo- = new. For Dr Marguerite Gertrude Anna Henrici (1892–1971), Swiss plant physiologist and plant collector who, after obtaining a PhD from the University of Basel, spent much of her life in the Orange Free State (now Free State). She obtained a DSc from the University of South Africa for work on the content of Karoo shrubs and grasses, and the division of plant industry built a well equipped laboratory for her in Fauresmith to study problems connected mainly with Karoo vegetation.
