BOTANICAL NAME: Costus juruanus
SUBGENUS:
GROUP:
SECTION:
PRIMARY SOURCE USED FOR DESCRIPTION:
SECONDARY SOURCES:
LAST UPDATED:
NOTES AND DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS:See Costus productus. In Monograph #8, Maas described a C. juruanus with var. juruanus and var. strigosus. In Monograph #18, that same description was applied to Costus productus and the following note added: "I have excluded C. juruanus (see insufficiently known species), as its exact position can not be determined, all type material having been destroyed. Moreover the surviving type-photograph does not show any detail of the inflorescence, which is completely covered by one of the upper leaves."

The photos to the left have not been verified as Costus juruanus, and may have been confused by the owner as it is similar to the plant idendified by Tom Wood as Costus zamoranus. It does not seem to match the description of either.
