Hi, I am making a research on a plant (Polygonum tinctorum), and I was given other names for it. like Persicaria tinctoria (Aiton) Spach & Pogalis tinctoria (Aiton) Raf.


What is the meaning ​of "Aiton", Spach. and Raf.? I can't find any botanical references in dictionaries or Internet. The meaning they give me don't make any sense.

Aiton and spach are the names of botanists who determined the names.

genius does what it must
