Specimens from Charles Plumier deposited in Paris in the American pteridophytes collections of Tournefort, Vaillant, Danty d’Isnard and Jussieu.

During the period 1689-1695, Charles Plumier collected and drew a large number of plants from the Antilles (Martinique, Santo Domingo). His drawings of Pteridophyta have been used by certain authors to describe new species. The Plumier specimens have never been cited and have been considered as being within the Tournefort collection. However, a number of them have recently been discovered in the Vaillant, Danty d’Isnard and Jussieu herbaria.
