Begonia cucullata var. hookeri (A.DC.) L.B.Sm. & Schub.  ??

We have Begonia cucullata only in efi so far. Pl. check references here.
Catalogue of life shows distribution in East Himalayas for Begonia cucullata var. cucullata and not for Begonia cucullata var. hookeri (A.DC.) L.B.Sm. & B.G.Schub.

Then is it Begonia cucullata var. cucullata ??


Var. hookeri is a synonym of var. cucullata


So it is Begonia cucullata var. cucullata  ?


Yes, correct

Always mention weather wild or cultivated.


It is cultivated. In fact all the Begonia in Mahe are cultivated. I have no noticed any wild Begonia at Mahe.


Is it not same as in Begonia 9, identified by … as B. x sempeflorens ?
