Since as you have noted, Timofeyev is a Russian surname, it had to be transliterated from the Cyrillic to the Roman alphabet in order to be used as an element of a botanical name. The form in which this was done makes it obvious that this conversion was based on the principles of pronunciation in the German language. Globalization with its complexities is not a purely recent phenomenon.
