Dear Mary-la yes you have spotted the young leaves so well!! Best wishes, Peter

Thank you ever so much for naming this one Vinícius Antonio de... I'm pretty sure it must be the Actinostachys pennula..My very best wishes from Denmark, Peter

Hi, Peter. Do you know these plants properly? It can be Actnistachys subtrijuga too: for this reason I've put only the genus in my remark.

Best wishes.

Is it much likely to find the subtrijuga in the Manaus neighborhood too? Best wishes, Peter

Hi, Peter: both species occur in Amazonas. Greetings,
