I was given a cutting from somebody's garden plant; they said it was collected near Mera in Pastaza.
I've been to those woods and I haven't seen anything even remotely like this one.
What's throwing me, I think, is that the leaves are all but solid and the petioles are variegated.
|2010-01-12|| T. Croat ||I have two species listed from that area that may be this one.|
One I am calling D. tarabitensis Croat and the other D. holm-nielsenii Croat.
At the moment I don't know which it best fits since they may differ mostly in herbarium specimen characters.
