Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology: Widespread in a variety of vegetation types. Altitude of 10–1,100 m.

As recognised here, this a very variable species found in diverse habitats. Vierhapper described two further species C. schweinfurthii and C. kuriensis based mainly on leaf characteristics but they are not maintained here because of numerous intermediates. Plants with broader leaves tend to be found in the mountains (C. schweinfuthii) and on the outer islands (C. kuriensis) whilst plants with more or less linear leaves are found on coastal plains.
Systems: Terrestrial
