Common Costa Rica plants poisonous to dogs

Hey, here's something I just read about in the ASPCA newsletter: the Brunfelsia plant is deadly poisonous to dogs. It's pretty common here (the purple flowers eventually turn to white), so I thought I'd get the word out. Here are a couple of pictures for reference; more information about the plant can be found at this Wiki article.

Another one I already knew about is Datura, called "Queen of the Night/Reina de la Noche" here. This one is poisonous to all pets and children.
