Of the 364 collecting events represented by the plant specimens only 65 have a named collector. It is possible that H. J. Burkill contributed many of the earlier unattributed specimens. This is discussed by Hollins & Plant (1988) and Jennings et al. (in press). Some of the collectors were major figures in the LNHS during their time - as Presidents and leaders of committees etc. Ross and Niblett were leading cecidologists.
