    I posted this last year as gladiatus, but thanks to pyrrhonota's post I realized that it was mis-ID'd. I looked at every Ornithocephalus photo I could find online and inflexus looks like the closest match. Please feel free to confirm or deny this if you know the genus well, as I do not.

    Thanks Tom! Looks pretty similar to me, definitely a closer match than what gladiatus should look like... I'm going to try to take macro shots of the flowers tomorrow, I suspect some species IDs in this group may come down to minute and subtle details.
