Drawing depicting: Unidentified hummingbird, 2 small notes pasted to reverse: 1) "something like / Smaragdochrysis iridescens Gould[?]" (apparently Gould's hand); his plate of S. iridescens does not match details of color and form in this drawing--the species is now considered a Chlorostilbon hybrid; 2) "Plant. [Curtis] Vol. 16 Table 5163 / Described by Mulsant & . . . . / in the Annals of Agricultural Soc. / of Lyons as Hylocharius magica / in Elliot's collection." Both species in the notes are hummingbirds.
