Geologist Ferdinand Hochstetter arrived in 1858 with the Austrian Novara expedition and made extensive collections of New Zealand plants, animals and fossils which are held in Vienna. A number of New Zealand species are named after him, including the giant land snail Paryphanta hochstetteri. The name is written on the labels in this collection, at centre top.
