PLANT FAMILY: Costaceae
BOTANICAL NAME: Costus erythrophyllus Santa Maria form
FORMAL SCIENTIFIC NAME:
STATUS :
CONTINENT: Neotropical
SYNONYMS:


BOTANICAL NOTES:
In the state of Boyacá, Santa Maria area of the eastern Colombia Andes foothills, I found a plant that seems to be intermediate between Costus claviger and Costus erythrophyllus. The Colombians have placed it in C. claviger, but I think it is closer to C. erythrophyllus. It was found flowering both terminal and basal, has long bract appendages unlike those of C. claviger, and has somewhat plicate leaves. However some plants seen did not have the deeply lobed ligules of C. erythrophyllus and most did not have the characteristic purplish undersides to the leaves, so a determination is open to some interpretation. A collection there by B. Betancur in 2003 was det'd by N. R. Salinas as C. erythrophyllus.

ACCESSION NOTES:
R3306 from a steep slope above the resevoir and R3307 from seed collected along the Quebrada Cristalino.
