This looks like a passion flower to me but it has not been identified by the editors of the facsimilar edition of Frei Cristovao de Lisboa’s drawings (Maranhao, Brazil, 1625-1631).
Can someone identify it?

From “Historia dos animais e árvores de Maranhao” probably written between 1625 and 1631 by Frey Cristovao de Lisboa: Snowy Egret (Egretta thula) and Little Blue Heron (Egretta caerulea).
