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
