I've noticed that on many English written pages there stands "Ritter von Dannenfeld" which is German for "Knight of Dannenfeldt".

J. C. Pittoni was the one that collected first plants of this species in what is now Austria (Mur valley).

Interesting is that J.C. Pittoni did not collect plants in Austria only, but also in (what is now former) Yugoslavia.

In Austrian town Graz there is also "Pittonigasse", a street named in honour of J. C. Pittoni.
