Default Bucephalandra "Paris"

A small, gorgeous specimen. Turquoise leaves, contrasting with young reddish leaves and bright green shine looks fabulous.
The eye-catching thick central vein of the leaf is a characteristic feature.



SIZE: Mature leaves have got about 4.5 cm length and 1.5 cm width. Single seedling has got about 9-10 cm height.

RATE OF GROWTH: in my tank 3 leaves per month

As I already wrote elsewhere, I wonder if the "Paris" belongs to the newly described species Bucephalandra diabolica. The inflorescence of Buce "Paris", as shown in Nakamoto's pic, resembles very much the one of B. diabolica in the Wong & Boyce 2014 paper, p. 164.

Maybe Nakamoto or Peter Boyce know more.

On the market appeared many false varietes last time. They are even not look similar to the real.

I've already feared that this will happen. The whole matter with the hundreds of commercial Bucephalandra names is quite intransparent (where collected, named by whom etc.), and I believe, for an outsider it's hardly possible to assign an unnamed Buce to one of those trader names with certainty, maybe except the distinct "Achilles" / "Skeleton King" = kishii. For me it was already good to know that the Buces with names from the Greek mythology were named by Nakamoto. (Also "Paris": not the French capital but the legendary son of Priam is meant)

Yes. It is true. There are only few really honest collectors who write some informations about habitat. Most of them probably fear that other collectors/hunter will found that place so maybe this is the reason. I saw few other Bucephalandra named as Paris but none of them was the same as Nakamoto.

I've collected at least one Bucephalandra on Borneo myself, which is the best database to compare mine to, before I start selling them?

You should keep them into water few months to be able to say what it is or what it could be Bucephalandra changes its appearance under water

Hello Johan,
regarding commercial names of Buces, I think there's no thing like a database for them. The trader / commercial names are a highly inconsistent matter. To assign an unnamed buce to one of those names is a quite hopeless undertaking.

But the botanical description of Bucephalandra species is in progress. More than 50 species exist on Borneo, as Peter Boyce estimates, and 29 are already formally described and named. The most are local endemics or have a delimited range, so information about the locality is very important. And it's indispensable to check the inflorescence characters for ID.
You know the localities of your plants, and you've to wait for inflorescences. Put mature inflorescences in 70% ethanol and ask P. Boyce if he would like to check them. A Buce with known locality may even have scientific value.

Otherwise, if the plants are not yet IDed or scientifically described, perhaps it's best to name them with the locality name.
