Martin Johnson Heade (1819-1904) was an accomplished landscape and still life painter who, inspired by his travels in Central and South America, depicted scenes rich in flora and fauna. Most of the species in the NOVA series are tropical. P. gabrilliana is a recently described liana from French Guiana.
