Charles Meylan

Charles Meylan (23 June 1868, Le Brassus – 3 June 1941, Sainte-Croix) was a Swiss botanist.

From 1888 to 1926 he was a schoolteacher in the community of La Chaux, located near Sainte-Croix (Canton of Vaud). In 1922 he obtained an honorary doctorate from the University of Lausanne. He made contributions in the fields of lichenology and bryology (mosses and liverworts), and is also known for his research of Myxomycetes.

Taxa with the specific epithet of ''meylanii'' honor him, two examples being ''Calypogeia meylanii'' and ''Hymenostomum meylanii''. Provided by Wikipedia
