with C. Elmeri, from which it differs in being glabrous, or
essentially so, below, in having a more slender inflorescence,
narrower floral bracts and a more conspicuously exserted
corolla with a somewhat longer galea. The purplish cast
of the entire plant with the galea extending well beyond
the crimson or purplish bracts and calyx renders this an
attractive species and easily distinguished among its
numerous allies.
