In a Plate drawing given in Mr. Markham's Travels in Peru p. 5391, from Howards Quinologia2, the Cinchona micrantha is shown to be have flowers as plainly dimorphic as in Primula. —

My attention was first drawn to this plant, by a drawing copied from Howards Quinologia — Vol. 3 given by Mr M in the Travels in Peru.
