Notes: "Presumably this icon was painted in 1793 or 1794, when Mociño traveled with an artist in southern Veracruz, but the format and meticulous detail are those of the many West Indian subjects done by the artist Echeverría in 1795–96." according to Rogers McVaugh, Botanical Results of the Sessé & Mociño Expedition (1787–1803): VII.
