Passiflora colombiana, Colombia Starting our 2nd morning near La Cocha with a rare find. According to our guide Brayan, this is an extremely rare plant.  I tried to validate this claim and found the following:<br />
<br />
It was first described by L.K. Escobar in 1982, and it seems he also reported it in 1986. <br />

So I shall hereby post two photos, and become the world leader in photo contributions for this species. I expect people will now start holding open doors for me. Geotag removed to not help poachers too much.<br />

  1. Lol to your commentary! But, seriously - what a great find! Posted one year ago
    1. Thanks :) It's one of those things where a knowledgeable guide is so important. Without him, I probably would have walked right past it, or if seeing it...not finding it worthwhile to take a photo of. Posted one year ago
      1. So true! It seems like you had some incredible guides! Posted one year ago
