PLANT FAMILY: Costaceae
BOTANICAL NAME: Costus curvibracteatus aff. sp. nov. - basal flowering forms
FORMAL SCIENTIFIC NAME:
STATUS :
CONTINENT: Neotropical
SYNONYMS:


BOTANICAL NOTES:
Described by P. J. M. Maas in Flora Neotropica, an unknown species from Panama similar to C. curvibracteatus that flowers on a separate shoot and has larger leaves. This is from 2 Panamanian collections by Dressler and Maas and by Dressler and Kennedy from Altos de Pacora, at 750 meters in Panama Province. It is also growing at the site of the Willie Mazu Lodge in the La Fortuna area of Panama. There is also an Alan Carle collection from Costa Rica (specific location unknown) at Lyon Arboretum that appears to be a basal flowering form of C. curvibracteatus. Some collections of a similar plant have been made in the Choco region of Colombia.

In 2016 I received communication from Paul Maas that he will be publishing this form as a new species.

ACCESSION NOTES:
R3095 and R3178 is the Alan Carle collection from Costa Rica, received from John Mood, but it has not flowered for me.

R3147 and R3148 collected seeds at Willi Mazu, they germinated but seedlings did not survive. Rhizome did not survive either. This form needs very wet conditions.
