      Nice!

      It's not something I broadcast to the world, but it's ammo, just in case. When needed, I may rub it in the face of the 3 people on this planet who potentially give a shit.
    3. Embarrassed? You should feel proud. Look at afromoths, that enormous list of genuses, and you found the right one. That really is impressive.

      I'm very happy too that some got identified. Unfortunately, still only some, but that's so much better than almost none.

      Whoa, that is one stunning frog. Look at the webbing between the toes, crazy!

      And very beautifully captured, worthy of a place in this list of classics:

      Nice one, Chun!

      We're getting close to 3,000 butterflies and moths described:

    6. I think something was mixed up, this is what Epidendrum ptochium looks like:
      http://www.orchidmagic.f9.co.uk/Pages/Orchids%20of%20Ecuador/Epidendrum_ptochium_2557.htm

      I'm not an expert but it looks quite different. So I double checked with Sebastian and this is Epidendrum portokalium instead.

      I suspect you have another photo not yet shared that is Epidendrum ptochium?

      It's so cool to see how you discovered miniature orchids at this place as we had the same experience. Before, we did not understand the appeal of orchids but now we're totally hooked :)

      Here's some 400+ to enjoy:

      And thank you for adding more!

      Very nice! Described only one year ago by that other Sebastian:

      Both Sebastian's are orchid legends :)
    9. Ernst, this definitely looks like Prociphilus tessellatus visually, but still want to do a quick location check. From a casual search, it seems mostly reported from NA and Europe, hardly ever Asia or Australia. Do you have a record or reference of this species in Australia?

      Great, which browser did you use before, if I may ask?
