PLANT FAMILY: Costaceae
BOTANICAL NAME: Tapeinochilos densum
FORMAL SCIENTIFIC NAME: Tapeinochilos densus K.Schum.
STATUS :Accepted
CONTINENT:
SYNONYMS:


BOTANICAL NOTES:
T. densus (densum) is not listed in the key to species by Osia Gideon. He may have considered it a synonym for another species name. There seems to be some confusion between T. densum and T. hollrungii. The cultivated plant found under this name is a terminal flowering Tapeinochilos.

NOTE: After reviewing the information I have found on the Lyon PDF file by Ray Baker and reconsidering the exclusion of this species name by Dr. Gideon, I have transferred all my images of T. densum to T. hollrungii which I now believe to be the correct identification of the plant I received tagged as T. densum. Note that some of my photos appear to have more reddish colored bracts as noted by Dr. Gideon in his description of T. hollrungii. I am retaining the notations below (Horticultural Notes) because this plant is very popular under the name T. densum.

ACCESSION NOTES:
Listed at El Arish Tropical Exotics in Australia as T. densum X
"Tapeinochilos densum x is an excellent tap to try. It is one of the quickest to flower and in addition to it's deep amber flowers has extremely attractive stems. Flowers from the top of stems "

From: "Michael Pascall" - The pictures I posted in the files section at this site of Tapienochilus sp.Giant Yellow should be now called Tapienochilus densum .I am only going on informationgiven to me by a very knowledgable employee of Limberlost , who got the name from one of the suppliers of Gingers . He would not give me the name of the person to check up , maybe a member of this list could verify the validityof this name .
