Deming also mentions Linnaea borealis, a flower so nice that Linnaeus went ahead and named it after himself in his own taxonomy en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linnaea_ wikipedia also notes that "Linnaeus's remains comprise the type specimen for the species Homo sapiens following the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, since the sole specimen that he is known to have examined was himself," so he actually managed to get himself in his own taxonomy TWICE

@aparrish Thanks for leading me down the Wikipedia rabbit hole. 🙂

One interesting thing from the article:

also known after his ennoblement as Carl von Linné[3] (Swedish pronunciation: [ˈkɑːɭ fɔn lɪˈneː]

The interesting thing is that the initial f-sound in "von" is not Swedish but German. If it was a Swedish word, it would be pronounces as a v.

In Swedish, "von" is "av", or in the older spelling in use at the time: "af" (pronounced with a v-sound).
