I found this plant growing in the flood plain of the Rio Rincon on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica. It does not fit the description of any known species, but it clearly has some characters of Costus lima and was growing in a lima type habitat. I can only guess that it is a hybrid of C. lima with another species, possibly Costus villosissimus, based on the hairiness and the green appendaged bracts with yellow flowers. It grows quite tall but has a very long flowering period having been in flower all year in my greenhouse.
