Cyrtandra sp Kipuka 14b 2580

Cyrtandra sp Kipuka 14b 2580
October 6, 2009. Kipuka 14, south of of Kaumana Trail. Cyrtandra sp., haiwale. The abundant Cyrtandra in this kipuka was overwhelmingly of this type, with a short branching habit, ovate-elliptic leaves, and narrow calyx lobes that were usually split to the base. Possibly a local offshoot/incipient species of C. platyphylla? Only one small patch of typical platyphylla was present and no other species, ruling out hybrids.
