(Mt Madiaas, 1 collected). Habitat - in mossy forests, often common
on summits of higher mountains in northern Luzon at 2000-2500 m.
Begonia gutierrezii C.Coyle.
Endemic to southern Palawan at quite low altitudes. This
species occurs within the Lipuun Point Reservation, but is currently

Hoya Buotii Kloppenburg.

The leaves are 4-7 cm long, 2-4 cm wide with visible veins.
The center vein is lowered. This is a hoya that is best grown on a

The very hairy flowers have yellow corolla and the corona is white
with red in the middle.
