    THe leaf shape on this one seems to be variable. The flower on mine looks similar but it is a little different.

    I have one just like that and I bought it as L. mastodon. They are supposed to be synonyms but I think they┬┤re quite different.

    I think Harry's is mastodon/manabina and Linda's is something else. Manabina has the tusks.

    Thanks, Mika. I can't say anything about the ID...
    I remember that, not too long ago, someone showed a similar plant and I thought it was Lep. mastodon, but few people here and one botanist outside the forum think it well could be the real Lep. manabina.... well, I am quite confusing about the ID of this group now, but at least this one has very different leaf shape.
