Gallery: Megaskepasma erythrochlamys

This photo of a Megaskepasma erythrochlamys was taken by ZP M PC. It has a common name Brazilian red cloak plant.

Here is the current indexed representative photo, courtesy of Joy Valencia Villafuerte-Hafalla.

But we were surprised that an earlier indexed photo which appeared in Around the World Section is the same species as this plant.

The first photo is actually a justicia. It is actually a Justicia cydoniaefolia (Nees) Lindau syn. Adhatoda cydoniaefolia or a brazilian Brazilian bower plant. Thanks to Benigno S. Resurreccion for the correct identification.

for the first time.
