Jamesbrittenia ramosissima (
) Hilliard is a Southern African shrub in the family Scrophulariaceae occurring in the Northern Cape and southern Namibia, westward along the Gariep River from the vicinity of Augrabies Falls. It is one of some 90 species in the genus "Jamesbrittenia", ranging through Africa, with 74 species occurring in Southern Africa, and 1 in India. The genus is named for James Britten (1846-1924), medical student turned botanist, and acting Keeper of Botany at the British Museum when Kuntze named it.
This species was first published as "Borago zeylanica" by Nicolaas Laurens Burman in 1768. In 1810, Robert Brown transferred it into "Trichodesma", but this was retained only until 1882, when Ferdinand von Mueller transferred it into "Pollichia". In 1891, Otto Kuntze transferred it into "Boraginella", and in 1898 William Philip
transferred it into "Borraginoides". Despite these many later transfers, it is Brown's placement that is currently accepted.

Commonly known as the small-leaved fig, "Ficus obliqua" was described by German naturalist Georg Forster in 1786 based on type material collected in Vanuatu. Dutch botanist Friedrich Miquel described "Urostigma eugenioides" from Albany Island in Queensland in 1861, which was reclassified by Victorian Government Botanist Ferdinand von Mueller as "Ficus eugenioides" in 1867, and it was known as this for many years. However, as Forster's name is older, it takes precedence. The specific epithet is the Latin adjective "obliquus", meaning "oblique", although the attribute it refers to is unclear. Frederick Manson Bailey described "Ficus tryonii" in 1906, from a collection at altitude on Middle Percy Island in the Whitsunday Islands off central Queensland, which is now regarded as "F. obliqua". Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander collected and named "Ficus virginea" from Booby Island in 1770, which was synonymised with "F. obliqua" by William Philip
