Watercolour illustration commissioned by William Roxburgh. ROX206. In his 'Flora Indica', Roxburgh describes this species as parasitical. This drawing comes from the set which is usually unnumbered, but in this instance bears the number '206' in pencil in the top right corner. This illustration is different from the other drawing of the same species. Roxburgh, 'Flora Indica' (1832) v.1, p.548, v.2, p.185.
