Notas: This species can be recognized by its rather robust habit, stipules so deeply divided they appear to be four free stipules, tall narrow inflorescences, and red to orange or yellow showy corollas. The flowers are diurnal and apparently pollinated by hummingbirds. Boom (1984) noted that this species is "a common lowland pioneer species in terra firme forests and savannas".
Distribución: French Guiana, Surinam, and northeastern Brazil and also naturalized in several of the Lesser Antilles (St. Vincent, Martinique), at 50-500 m.
