DESCRIPTION:
This species easily confused with C. scaber. Differences noted by Paul Maas are the color of the bracts (exposed part greenish vs. orange or red), longer bracteole and calyx, slightly longer and wider stamen and anther. This specimen does NOT have a single line of minute hairs on the upper midrib as does C. scaber. C. spicatus is native to the Caribbean Islands of Hispaniola and the Lesser Antilles whereas C. scaber is from mainland Central and South America.
