    Default no identification wild begonia

    a begonia with no id. Any idea?

    It occured on very loose hill slope, very cool and shady environment.
    Some have the tinge of red as in photo #1, but may disappear completely as they matured, or were absent completely in some young plant as in #2.

    I just read your post and it is the same plant. I think this was described by Ruth Kiew. Peter (Harvey) might be able to help.

    Begonias from peninsula malaya were well covered by Ruth Kiew's book. I hope soon there will be a publication for sarawak and Sabah.
