Columnea scandens

Edwards, 1824

C. scandens was an early gesneriad introduction, and the subject of several pre-1830 print publications.  Other illustrations of the species can be seen here, here and here.  The last (Van Geel, 1828) appears to be an inverted copy of this print.  A later illustration, from 1859, can be  seen here.

A photo of a plant can be seen here here.
