Certainly! Here are some Greek mythological allusions to plants and animals:

1. Narcissus: In Greek mythology, Narcissus was a beautiful young man who fell in love with his own reflection and eventually turned into a flower that bears his name, the narcissus.

2. Hyacinth: Hyacinth was a young Spartan prince loved by the god Apollo. When Hyacinth died, Apollo transformed his blood into a flower known as the hyacinth.

3. Pegasus: Pegasus was a winged horse in Greek mythology, born from the decapitated head of the monster Medusa. Nowadays, Pegasus is often used to refer to winged horses or as a symbol of speed or majesty.

4. Centaur: In Greek mythology, centaurs were creatures with the upper body of a human and the lower body of a horse. The term "centaur" is now used to refer to anything that is a hybrid or a combination of two different things.

5. Chimera: The Chimera was a mythical creature with the head of a lion, the body of a goat, and the tail of a snake. The term "chimera" is often used to describe something that is an illusion or a figment of the imagination.
