Fraser’s hill – 17/07/2014 – afternoon

Probably a Gesneriaceae member?

May be a species of Pentaphragma (Pentaphragmataceae)

The genus Cyrtandromoea and family Gesneriaceae. I am not sure about the species name.

These two photographs look like Epithema of Gesneriaceae. There are so many species extending from Africa to India and SE, Asia. Therefore I am unable to identify the species.

Sorry, from these photographs I could reach only up to the generic name. It is impossible to proceed further unless full plant is examined and dissected.

I just had a look into the efi-homepage and came across a plant running under “Gesneriaceae member- Fraser’s hill, Malaysia”
This is not a gesneriad, but definitely a Pentaphragma, most probably P.  horsfieldii, of the family Pentaphragmataceae (Asteridae).

so we did really not have a conclusion on this case way back in 2014, I am glad … found it
