Range DescriptionRecorded from Bioko, Mt. Cameroon, Mt. Oku and the Bamenda Highlands, Chappal Wadi and Mambila Plateau. This Giant Lobelia is the only representative in West Africa of a group for which East African mountains are famous. Although there are numerous collections from Mount Cameroon, was found to be extremely rare during the 1992 survey of Etinde, when only one or two specimens were seen. In contrast, it is relatively abundant in many localities on Mt. Oku (M. Cheek, pers. obs., Nov. 1996), where it is gregarious with 10-50 plants being found at each site.
