Begonia wengeri C. E. C. Fisch.

Wenger’s Begonia (Begonia wengeri)

Wenger’s Begonia was described in 1932; it is apparently known exclusively from the type material which was collected on moist shady banks along water bodies in the undergrowth of the evergreen forests in the southern Lushai Hills in Mizoram, India.

The species was not found since and might be extinct.


The photo below shows another, unspecified congeneric species that was photographed in Mizoram, India.
