Why under "Rose Search" are the roses listed for 'Duc de Richelieu' attributed to Charles Duval but in the "Rose Descriptions" attributed to Hippolyte Duval? Were they the same person?

Re: both 'Claude Plantier' and 'Henri Plantier' the authors Madeleine Mathiot, Jean Brun, and Jean-Luc Girerd write in issue 19 (2013) of Roses anciennes en France, in the article "Jacques Plantier, precurseur des rosieristes lyonnais":
"As Jacques had for some time become more and more interested in rose breeding, especially their multiplication, the birth of his son provided the opportunity to name two of his first creations as 'Claude Plantier' and 'Henri Plantier'. Three years later on May 17, 1816, a daughter is born who is soon rewarded with a rose named for her: 'Julie Plantier'."

These three roses also increase the list of 39 that you have posted under Plantier to 42.
