Streptocarpus polyanthus

Van Houtte, 1845

There are considered to be several subspecies of S. polyanthus, with S. polyanthus ssp polyanthus probably the most similar to these prints.  Note the subtle differences in coloring of the two prints, taken from different editions of the same publication.  They are also mirror images of each other, suggesting that one was copied from a printed version of the first -- when transferred to the engraving plate, it would appear inverted when printed.
