    Default Trichoceros antennifer

    This species occurs from Ecuador to Bolivia at elevations of 1800-3000m.

    The flowers simulate the female flies of the genus Paragymnomma. Since there is no fragrance, attraction seems based entirely on visual stimuli. Flower size 2cm. I/C grower.

    My thoughts exactly. Knowing the pollinator makes orchids even more interesting!
