Title: Cyrtandra rotumaensis (Gesneriaceae) of Rotoma Island. Pacific Plant Studies 20 
Author: St. John, Harold
Date: 1970-10
Publisher: University of Hawai'i Press
Citation: St. John H. 1970. Cyrtandra rotumaensis (gesneriaceae) of Rotoma Island. Pacific plant studies 20. Pac Sci 24(4): 457-461.
Abstract: The genus Cyrtandra extends from Malaya to
eastern Polynesia, and includes some 600 species.
The writer in 1938 made collections of the flora
of Rotuma Island, an isolated, low, volcanic
island that is situated about 300 miles north of
the Fiji Archipelago. Only one species of
Cyrtandra was discovered there, but it was
notable in being a halophyte and in being poisonous.
The nearest high land is in Fiji, so it
is not surprising that the closest relative of the
Rotuman species is one found in Fiji.
