    This Lepanthes is named after a noctornal bird. The beak of that bird resembles (with a lot of phantasy) the flower or rather vica versa :)
    It is a cool grower from Ecuador and Peru. Though it survived three hot summers and does well. In the winter it is in my orchidarium.

    Strange how they always seem to look the other way round.
    Away from the light I suppose.

    That’s a nice theory, Gerrit. I will have to pay more attention to this.
