Botany picture #11: Elytraria

Believe it or not, this little beauty is also an Acanthaceae, an Elytraria from Mexico, 2007. Unfortunately I do not know the species name.


  1. this is Elytraria mexicana, and a nice photo of it. I notice that you also have a super photo of Justicia mirandae, which I did not recognize from the image of a living plant (because I have never seen it living); but I described the plant in 1995.

  2. Thanks for the determination, and the praise! I would never have guessed that you would find this lowly blog. Perhaps I should post more Acanth pictures in the future...
