Unidentified flower
« on: Wed, 19 May 2021, 02:56:03 PM »
This flower was found along the Kabalebo river inside the resort area. Date 26.2.2020. I send a mail to the site of the lodge but got no answer. ID please?

Hello Jap Smits, welcome to GNF!

From this point of view, I would say that this plant probably belongs in the family Costaceae. Do you have additional photos from other angles, showing the rest of the inflorescence and/or the leaves?

Cheers,

Auke

Thanks, I think you are right. I found two different color species. They look like Costas species (guanaiensis)
