I'll pull another image from the bin, accumulated from the past rainy season. This one is of Psychotria sp., a hallucinogenic plant in the Rubiaceae family. The local name is "mata vaca", which translates into "kill the cow". I'm told that only a few leaves will kill a cow. There seem to be many different species of this genus. We may have 3-4 at the Bosque.
