André Revillon d'Apreval

André Revillon d'Apreval, aka A. d'Apreval, was a French botanical illustrator and lithographer, active 1875-1910, and known for his images in Plantae Davidianae (1884–88), Illustrationes Florae Insularum Maris Pacifici (1886-92) and Histoire physique, naturelle et politique de Madagascar (1882). Henri Ernest Baillon, the French physician and botanist, and main contributor to Histoire physique, naturelle et politique de Madagascar, named a new genus d'Aprevalia after him in 1884, no doubt in honour of his illustrating the work, but the name was later placed under Delonix by René Paul Raymond Capuron. A number of species such as Commiphora aprevalii (Baill.) Guillaumin, were named to commemorate him.
