Cyrtandra 3 (Note: I was calling this Cyrtandra C. kailuaensis for a while, but I no longer think that that name is applicable to it.)


Hawaiian names: ha`iwale

Family: Gesneriaceae - the African violet family

Native. So far I have seen this Cyrtandra only in the Kāne`ohe area, which is on the windward (northeastern) side of the southeastern Ko`olau Mountains, O`ahu.

Habitat: gulch bottoms in low elevation wet forest.
