Niphaea albo-lineata

Van Houtte, late 1840s

Now known as Phinaea albolinata.  An earlier print from Curtis can be seen here.  Note that the prints are reversed -- this suggests that the later Van Houtte publication had the plate prepared from the original Curtis, resulting in the mirror-image effect.  Another (different) print of the same species can be seen here.
