Damian, you might try a Spanish language flora. I recognize at least some of
these as common species in the Southern US, and presumably throughout Central
America and the Caribbean as well. Depending on where you are located, a
Spanish-speaking extension agent can probably help you. If you tel me where you
are located,. I may be able to refer you to a local resource.
