Among the various scientific designations there is "oncini" and looking at the inflorescence  I realize the name must be associated to a particular kind of South American feline, "onça" ( also named "Jaguar" ) that has a fur with just those spots.  In English I remember references to  'ouncelot'.  

Onça - Panthera onca
Classe: Mammalia; ordem: Carnivora; família: Felidae; gênero: Panthera
