Please help with the etymology of osyrensis as in Argyreia osyrensis (Roth) Choisy
The suffix ensis would mean “of or from some place”. However, I was not able to find.
In my post at Google Group efloraofindia, Ron suggested it may have some connection with sandalwoods in some manner … stemming from osyr - Greek Osyris - genus of plants in the Family Santalacea - many of its genus known as sandalwoods. His perspective that it could be a place where sandalwoods grow, is the nearest possibility of finding what osyrensis is named for.
Looking forward to know about this epithet’s etymology.
