We recently reported [see “Fabaceae” under “Leaps and Bounds” in The Cutting Edge  17(4), Oct. 2010] the discovery in Costa Rica of this species, which, unfortunately, came too late for its inclusion in Manual Vol. 5 (2010).  Manual co-PI Nelson Zamora later visited the site (on the shoulder of the Carretera Interamericana, about 1 km north of the entrance to Parque Nacional Santa Rosa) and confirmed the identification, and documented it by the accompanying photos (vouchered by Zamora 5947).  Nelson speculates that the seeds may have hitched a ride on a truck heading southward from Nicaragua, where the sp. is very common.
