Teagueia cymbisepala is the rarest of
the seven Teagueia species on Cerro Mayordomo.
I only found a single plant, and its only flower was
almost closed. Weather conditions were too harsh for
my camera, which had fogged up completely that day,
so I do not even have a photograph of it. It was the
biggest and most brightly colored Teagueia
species on Mayordomo.
It grew at 3100 m among plants of T. alyssana,
T. jostii, and T. sancheziae, all
creeping in the moss that covered the ground and lower
tree trunks.. Most likely there are big populations
of T. cymbisepala on some unexplored mountain
