1755 at the order of emperor Franz I of

Vienna and director of the botanical

of Linnaeus.
letter of 21 February 1776Letter L5186. The Orchis is a variant, and Linnaeus cites a work dealing with that genus.

Linnaeus had suggested Panbroma as a new name for Theobroma, but Abroma is a better name, so it will be that if Jacquin does not mind.

There will be no more new books acquired by the Uppsala University library this year, since so many new works have already been presented for the following year.
