Chamaecrista sp., Wild Sensitive Plant, Partridge Pea 

Click to see full-size image Chamaecrista sp.
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Caesalpinioideae
Wild Sensitive Plant, Partridge Pea
Origin: North America
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterYellow/orange flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsUnknown name

There are a great many varities of this species some of which have been considered separate species. Formerly considered in the genus Cassia.

Many ID books and botanical keys mention that the way to differentiate between Chamaecrista fasciculata and the very similar Chamaecrista nictitans is by the presence or absence of a stalk on the gland which is at the base of the leaf petioles. The best way to tell the two species apart is by the flower, which is very different in size between the two species. Vegetatively the two species are practically identical.

The yellow flowers are irregular in shape. Blooms first appear in mid spring and continue into early fall. The lower petal is much larger and more spreading than the others.

Chamaedorea sp., Chamaedorea

Click to see full-size image
Chamaedorea ernesti-augustii
 Chamaedorea sp.
Family: Arecaceae / Palmae
Chamaedorea
Origin: Central America
Small tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterPalm or palm-likeUnknown name

Stems obsolete to erect, slender or (rarely) subarborescent, solitary or (C. costaricana) cespitose, unarmed. Petioles unarmed, sometimes with conspicuous, yellowish, abaxial stripe, the sheath splitting or closed, sometimes (C. costaricana, C. graminifolia) forming brief crownshaft, rarely (C. costaricana) with distal, ligule-like structure. Leaf-blades simple and bifid to pinnately compound. Peduncle short to elongate, usually becoming orange to red in fruit, with 1-several elongate, apically bifid, persistent to deciduous bracts. Ripe fruits smooth to verrucose-echinulate (C. crucensis), globose to obovoid or ellipsoid, orange to red or (usually) dark purplish or black, with basal stigmatic residue.

Chamaedorea is unique, among palm genera occurring in Costa Rica, in being dioecious. This, however, is not a character of practical utility either in the herbarium or in the field. Most species are relatively nondescript, but can usually be recognized by the combination of small size (always less 10m tall), solitary (except C. costaricana), green stems, spineless and otherwise glabrous foliage, papery, apically bifid peduncular bracts, and ebracteate flowers. Some species have a yellowish abaxial stripe on the petiole and leaf-rachis, which is diagnostic, and species with pinnately compound leavs usually have sigmoid pinnae.

Male and female infls. of the same Chamaedorea sp. are sometimes very different. The ephemeral and seldom-collected male infls. and flowers generally provide the most useful diagnostic characters for Chamaedorea species; however, complete information is ideal. in synchrony.

Costa Rica and Panama comprise a center of diversity for Chamaedorea, which is especially species-rich in mid-elevation rain forests. Many species (especially those with simple leavs) are ornamental, and assiduously sought by unscrupulous collectors. Wild populations of such species are under constant siege, and some have been extirpated. Most Chamaedorea species are rare and local to begin with, which exacerbates the problem.
