Other photos of this oddly attractive but highly variable species may be seen here, here and here. The whole plant, on which these flowers were growing, can be seen here.
C. minor is one member of this genus which has had various taxonomic homes. Some botanists have split the genus Columnea into five separate genera. Under that scheme this species would be known as Trichantha minor. As noted in the Genus page for Columnea, we have opted for the scheme that aggregates all members of this group in the single genus Columnea.
