Auguste Jean Marie Bachelot de la Pylaie


French naturalist Auguste Jean Marie Bachelot de la Pylaie travelled to the St.-Pierre et Miquelon archipelago, and Newfoundland, in 1816, and again in 1819-20.

While conducting a survey of western and northern Newfoundland, in 1820, he stopped at Ingornachoix Bay for eight days. There he collected a number of "limestone plants", including Hyssopleaf Fleabane (Erigeron hyssopifolius), Kalm's Lobelia (Lobelia kalmii), Marsh Grass-of-Parnassus (Parnassia palustris), Laurentian Primrose (Laurentian Primrose), and Netvein Willow (Salix reticulata)   (Bachelot de la Pylaie 1825: 73).
