SEASON'S PICK: Gasteranthus delphinioides (Seem.) Wiehler

Gasteranthus delphinioides Gasteranthus delphinioides

Gasteranthus delphinioides, a rather uncommon member of the family Gesneriaceae, is restricted in Costa Rica to wet forests in the most southerly portions of the country, most conspicuously in the Golfito region. According to our records, this sp. flowers sporadically throughout the first nine months of the year. Nonetheless, it was in full bloom during the recent taxonomy course (News and Notes) at the Fila Gamba field station. The species is vouchered from this area by Luis Acosta 1768 (INB).

The rainy season is the high time for many spp. of Gesneriaceae:

Alloplectus ambonensis

Alloplectus ambonensis L. E. Skog

Diastema racemiferum

Diastema recemiferum Benth
