Abstract

Recent expeditions to the northwestern slopes of the Ecuadorian Andes and revisionary work of Columned (Gesneriaceae) have resulted in the discovery of a new plant species. The new species, Columnea lucifer, is distinguished from other congeners by the presence of dense villous indument on the stems, bright white calyces with red lobes, and elongate tubular yellow corollas with red lobes. Expediciones recientes a la vertiente oriental de los Andes Ecuatorianos y el trabajo de revisión del género Columnea (Gesneriaceae) permitieron el descubrimiento de una especie nueva de planta. La nueva especie, Columnea lucifer, se distingue por la presencia de un denso indumento velloso en los tallos, cáliz blanco lustroso con lóbulos rojos, y corola alargada, tubular, amarilla con lóbulos rojos.
