Ruellia yurimaguensis

Behold, a purple-flowered herb from wet forests of tropical western South America. I have never seen or collected it, but I have some suspicions that it may be synonymous with a couple of other ‘species’ in that part of the world. Many thanks to Alexander for sharing his photograph collection with me.
