Type(s) of accepted name: David Scherberich - 1148
Notes: Plant in cultivation in Lyon Botanical Garden under n 080405, originally collected by H. Laporte in 2001 in Nosy Mangabe. It has never been recollected since and unfortunately no herbarium specimens have been sourced. Over the years, living plants have been shared with Begonia collectors and although it is a very tricky plant to keep alive, it is still present in a few specialized collections and among terrarium growers. The habit is erect in cultivation but a picture taken in situ by H. Laporte, shows a colony of plants growing on granite, with pendent leaves. That habit could reflect a reaction to a momentarily dry period.
