PLANT FAMILY: Costaceae
BOTANICAL NAME: Costus guanaiensis aff. var. macrostrobilus Siete Cataratas
FORMAL SCIENTIFIC NAME:
STATUS :
CONTINENT: Neotropical
SYNONYMS:


BOTANICAL NOTES:
This was found in Esmeraldas province of Ecuador and looked very similar to the Bilsa plicate form but the hairs on the lower side of the leaves are very sparse, only along the veins, and on the upper side of the leaves feel somewhat scabrous. The hairs are white (not brown). Therefore I think this form probably fits in var. macrostrobilus.

ACCESSION NOTES:
R3202 collected seeds near Siete Cataratas, along highway from Lita in Esmeraldas, Ecuador It has dense hairs on the upper side of the leaves and very sparse nearly glabrous on the lower side. It has not flowered yet in cultivation.
