Vicia dennesiana H. C. Watson. The extinct Azorean endemic Vicia dennesiana, here shown to be nested in the Mediterranean section Cracca. This drawing originally published in Curtis’s Botanical Magazine in 1887, ser. 3, vol. 43, was made of a plant cultivated at Royal Botanical Gardens Kew from seeds of plants cultivated in the private garden of H. C. Watson, who obtained his seeds from T. C. Hunt, then British consul on São Miguel Island, Azores [47]. The Kew plants were subsequently lost in a late May frost [48] and the species was not rediscovered ever since.
