Subject: crryhe, marmottao

I am working on the translation of a 19th English text about the Bonin
Islands in the Pacific.
Discussing the plants and animals of the island, the text reads "there
are on the Islands, wild plum, crryhe, orange, laurel, juniper and box
wood tree, sandal wood, marmottao, wild cactus, curry plant, wild sage
and celery."

Has anyone ever heard of "crryhe" or "marmottao"? I can't find them in
dictionaries. The spelling of the former looks very odd, but I can't
figure out what kind of typo this could be.
