Pandanus candelabrum, P.Beauv. (Lustre Screw-pine)

Original illustration from Curtis's Botanical Magazine, published as plate 5014, 1st November 1857. Watercolour and pencil on paper. W.J. Hooker points out that, although the specimen figured here was sent to Kew by the Governor Hercules G.R. Robinson from Saint Kitts, this species is a native of the West coast of Africa. PLEASE NOTE: Although identified as Pandanus candelabrum in Curtis's Botanical Magazine, botanists now believe this image shows Pandanus utilis
