Recently introduced from Manipur by PanGlobal Plants under their collection number NMJ.12.077. Their description reads:
"A new species, very recently described, though originally found by Kingdon Ward in Manipur. One of the most splendid foliage Begonias
with very large, palmate, heavily dissected leaves on red spotted petioles. Pink flowers in late summer. Makes a very bold clump up
to 50cm high by 75cm across. Possibly hardy outside with a mulch but untested so far."
