The flowers of my Renanthera were delightfully cheery. Unfortunately I got to enjoy only this one. A loathsome curculionid beetle, Stethobaris polita, damaged all the other flowers. This beetle used to be a rare nuisance that was seen infrequently. But since Spathoglottis plicata invaded the forest where I live and established populations of thousands, maybe even tens of thousands in the local fern prairies, this beetle has become much, much common.
