FABACEAE/FABOIDEAE. Manual co-PI Nelson Zamora and colleagues waited more than five years for a mystery tree of the genus Styphnolobium to flower in the Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre Gandoca-Manzanillo, near Puerto Viejo de Talamanca. But when it finally flowered this February, no one was there to see it! Fortunately, Nelson and his posse arrived at the scene in time to collect somewhat aged flowering material, which suggests (mainly by the size of the inflorescences and flowers) that the sp. involved may be S. parviflorum M. Sousa & Rudd, otherwise known only from southern Mexico (Veracruz) and perhaps El Salvador. This would be the second sp. of Styphnolobium added to the Costa Rican flora in as many years [see The Cutting Edge 10(3): 4, Jul. 2003], upping the ante to three.
