DescriptionIpomoea pes-caprae (L.) Roth (railroad vine, Convolvulaceae) is a pantropical, perenial beach plant that forms large patches just above the high tide line on coastal beaches and dunes throughout tropical and subtropical areas of the world. In spite of its wide distribution, only rare occurrences of I. pes-caprae have been documented in inland habitats. Here we report on extensive population of I. pes-caprae growing on the shores of Lake Nicaragua in the interior of Nicaragua.
