Any chance of Begonia surculigera Kurz ? I hoe … could guide us. POWO
It is not B. cathcartii. Any opinion on my earlier suggestion : Any chance of Begonia surculigera Kurz ? I hoe Dr.Hughes could guide us. POWO ??
I think this could be B. obversa, which so far is only known reliably from the type. Very interesting!
Correct, B. obversa is an accepted species, last published in the Camfield & Hughes account (2018). I’m not aware of any publications which have it in synonymy, so I can’t see why POWO etc have it so.
