BOTANICAL NOTES:
Maas in the Flora Neotropica monograph #18, describes a form of Costus allenii in the Santa Fe region of Veraguas, Panama that is aberrant in having strongly plicate leaves and a ligule up to 20 mm long.

A specimen from Neil Carroll, (R2959) collected in Panama in SF-Guabal, along the trail between Santa Fe and Guabal. This has a thick spongy sheath and plicate leaves similar to a specimen found in Smithsonian Greenhouse #1994-679. Bloomed in June 2003 and has been identified as Costus allenii in the Santa Fe form.

Another collection (R3136) at El Cope in central Panama not far from Santa Fe also has plicate leaves and appeared be this species in the Santa Fe form. The leaves on this one are narrower than R2959, and it has flowered both at the base and terminal.

ACCESSION NOTES:
R2959 from Panama near Santa Fe, flowered in 2003, but plant later declined and died. R3136 from seeds collected at El Cope in Panama. As of December 2016 plant has been very slow to increase but still alive.
