BOTANICAL NOTES:
Believed NOT to be a valid Costus species.
According to Tom Wood this species (lateriFOLus) is the epiphytic plant from Africa. A red flowering Costus from Brazil is Costus lateriFLORus. Needs further research as this is inconsistent with information on MoBOT. NOTE: I have reviewed Schuman 1904 and the epiphytic Costus from Africa is named C. lateriFLORUS - not lateriFOLIUS.
