    From flipping pages of a book, it has some resemblance to D. nycterina. A couple species related to D. bella look similar, and I don't know well about the differences.

    I once had a Dracula vespertilio that looked similar.

    Go ahead and eat one, no one will miss it. Is that either a cranberry or a huckleberry?

    Nice office! Love that Disterigma, sp. name should be rimbachii I think. Be careful eating berries, I've read edibility accounts of at least two other Disterigma spp. (empetrifolium and alaternoides), but Ericads can have some nasty nerve toxins so bioassay could be risky...

    They are members of Ericaceae that are normally found in central Americas growing epiphytically. Closely allied to blueberry.

    Today this surprised me. Dorstenia barnimiana. The structure sprouting up is the inflorescence.

    A008FB97-5EA9-41FE-BB77-0366F165A226.jpeg Not sure which one this is. Stan intermedia?

    At any rate, I still like my office. Giving some content during the downtime is my goal this winter break.
