The flowers we encountered in May of 2015 all had sterile-looking short stamens; the flowers encountered at the time of the type collection had longer, fertile stamens as shown in the illustration (scroll down to see illustration). Numbered units are cm. Photo by T. Mione in Peru, Mione et al. 845.

Character Description of Jaltomata alviteziana  

 

Figure 5, above. Jaltomata alviteziana. Flower. Photo by T. Mione in Peru, Mione et al. 845.
Figure 6, above. Jaltomata alviteziana. Flower. Nectar is red-orange. In contrast, the purple pigmentation is in the corolla. Radial thickenings are light in color, dividing the base of the corolla into five nectar troughs. Camera was focused on bottom of corolla rendering the androecium and gynoecium out of focus.
