    This one caught my eye driving by. I'm not sure of the ID though. Any Guesses? Maybe a Craig or?

    Ray, you got one right! I would agree, Columbiana.

    I can second that! It looks like a few hairs have been pulled out?

    Columbiana is quintessential Codiaeum. No two leaves look the same. It's genetic instability at its best.

    Also if Ray had never taken the photo in Cosumel, Mexico, saved it and then showed it to Bob Alonso for an ID - Black Beauty would have been lost in Florida. It was his eye that ID'd my photo I posted. - not found in any book that I know of. By the way, the new owners have workers destroying the flora and fauna at the house. There is a 50+ year old Nestor prone on the ground after being run over by a one ton truck. Through serendipity Black Beauty has been preserved thanks to Ray's eye. :)

    Randy - all your "Drive by Shooting" threads are awesome. I love it each and everytime you post a new one. Thank you for taking the time to create these threads. :)
