      From today's Facebook post:

      his delicate beauty is a neotropical bonnet orchid (Trichosalpinx pseudolepanthes). The genus Trichosalpinx has approximately 100 species and is widespread across most of Latin America. They are characterized by a ringed, ribbed sheath around the stem. In fact, the genus name refers to this ring and literally means “trumpet with hair”. And, to say that it’s a stunning orchid would certainly be an understatement! {Spotted in Colombia by JungleDragon user, NattyOne} #JungleDragon #orchid #epiphyte #Colombia #Trichosalpinxpseudolepanthes #Trichosalpinx
    3. It was a neat find! There were several on the tree and on the fence next to it. At least 4, anyway. Must be a popular spot for some reason.

      Thanks, Ferdy. I'm actually questioning my ID and have posted it on MO for advice.

      Ori, I'd like to share this on JungleDragon's Facebook page, but am confused about what the photo shows. Are the red things the fruits, with the flowers not being shown in this photo? I can't find any info online about this species, lol!

      Could this be Costasiella kuroshimae?
    9. Thanks, Marta! It blended in so nicely.

      Thanks, Ruth! I was trying to highlight the beauty over the gruesomeness. It was amazing that, aside from a bit of blood, there were no guts or bones left - not even a head. It was definitely appreciated and enjoyed by whoever ate it.
