Alloplectus dichrous
Curtis, 1846
Alloplectus dichrous

These virtually identical prints are clearly from two different publications.  It is likely that the Curtis is the original, with the other print being a copy.  Note the different tones obtained by different hand colorers, and the way the right side of the Curtis has been elaborated in the other print, the likely copy.  Now properly known as Nematanthus hirtellus.
