    This is a very distinctive cultivar of this species with its darker coloring. The first image is with the lip down waiting for a pollinator. The second image is with the lip up as you would find it at night or closed as it would be after an insect as touched the lip. The last image is the whole plant.

    I'll have to look for one of these. What's your culture like?
