LONGINOS, Jose (lon-ge'-nos), Spanish naturalist, born in Logrono, Spain, about 1750; died in Campeche, Mexico, in 1803. In 1787 King Charles III. sent a botanical expedition to explore Mexico and Central America, and Longinos was appointed its chief. He explored Mexico and California, then travelled through Central America, and during his sojourn in the capital gave public lessons in botany and founded a museum of natural history. He was an excellent taxidermist, and formed a large collection of specimens, of which he sent many boxes to the Royal museum in Madrid, and the rest was delivered after his death to his executor, Dr. Saenz de Alfaro, in Mexico. From Guatemala he went to explore Yucatan, where he died. Besides manuscript catalogues of his collections, he wrote "Respuesta a Don Vieente Cervantes sobre la Goma Elastica o Arbol del Hale" (Mexico, 1799).
