BOTANICAL NOTES:
This orange flowering form of Costus guanaiensis was found along the road above the town of Atalaya in the Manu area of southern Peru. Based on the shape of the bract appendages, the lack of hairs on the leaves and the location in Peru I am guessing that this plant should be placed in variety tarmicus.
