Abutilon striatum, Dicks. A Guatemalan species perhaps not in cult. in its original form: middle lobe of lf. usually at least twice as long as undivided part, of blade and twice longer than broad, green: calyx somewhat less than 1 in. long, the lobes about twice as long as tube, brown-pubescent; corolla 1 3/4 in. or less long, orange, conspicuously dark crimson-veined. B.M. 3840 (as Sida picta).—Var. Thompsonii, Veitch. Fig. 67. Lvs. variegated with yellow, not pubescent; first exhibited by Veitch & Sons in 1868; said to be from Jamaica; perhaps not in general cult. at present.—Var. spurium, Lynch. Lvs. variegated with yellow, thinly pubescent above but thickly pubescent beneath with fine hairs, the calyx white-pubescent: corolla light reddish orange with redder veins; probably of garden origin.—The cult, forms of this species-group are imperfectly understood, particularly those passing as A. Thompsonii. In England, the form usually known as A. Thompsonii, and used for bedding, is the var. spurium. In N. Amer. several different things are called A. Thompsonii, some of them not variegated and at least one of the variegated forms having double fls. The Fig. 67 is inserted to distinguish the plant originally distributed as A. Thompsonii, and to which the name should be restricted. Probably some of the A. Thompsonii forms belong in the general A. hybridum group.

The confusion between the Brazilian A. pictum and the Guatemalan A. striatum is reduced by N. E. Brown, G. C. 1910 (2) pp. 427 and 488.
