Scyphanthus elegans Sweet

Sweet en The British Flower Garden, Vol. 3 t. 238, 1828:
The present beautiful flowering plant is a native of Chili, and is generally considered in our collections as the Loasa volubilis of Jussieu; but we have examined a specimen of that plant in Mr. Lambert's Herbarium, that was received from Jussieu himself; in that the capsule is short and turbinate, and does not belong to the same genus as the present plant.
Hierba voluble anual o bianual endémica de las regiones 4,5,M,6,7,8,9 de Chile, de 800 a 1,600 m.
