This plant, which is supposedly also known as flore
or chalviande, is said to be used as a hallucinogen
in the coastal region of Ecuador (Alvear 1971,
23*). Whether the botanical identification given
by Alvear is correct is more than doubtful. It may
be that the plant being referred to is actually Ipomoea
carnea, which is also called matacabra C'goat
killer") (see Ipomoea spp.).
