Osia Gideon Monograph: Listed as a terminal flowering species with straight bracts and inflorescence < 11cm in diameter, with flowers about the same length as the bracts (flower to bract ratio 1.1 to 1.3). Flowers 30-46 mm long, as long as the bract or longer. Bracts characteristically yellow-tipped, not pungent, endemic to the Solomon Islands. Not on Plant List of accepted names. Listed by Osia Gideon under the spelling of T. Salomonensis, but I am listing here with the spelling derived from the Solomon Islands.
Accession 2003.0170 at Lyon Arboretum in Hawaii, PDF file at Heliconia Society International website under spelling T. salomenensis. This may be confused with T. novaebudaensis based on the notation on the Ray Baker's Lyon PDF.
