    Default Pleurothallis (Effusiella) convallaria

    Photographed yesterday at a nursery in Ecuador. By the way, it's genuinely chilly here this morning. It's been in the 60s and 70s since I got here, but this morning I need a jacket and 2 shirts. But I digress...

    That's one strange looking orchid, but so pretty. Thanks for recording and posting all those wonderful orchids that we seldom see here.

    Thank you for the encouragement! You live in a place with many outstanding species, too! I have always wanted to visit Malaysia to see the plants, the beetles, and the butterflies. One day I will!

    And you will be very welcome Duane. Of course we feel very blessed with all the riches that nature has bestowed upon us, but Malaysia is more than just the fauna and the flora. Our greatest asset is the diversity of of our peoples and our cultures. And as our travel brochures will tell you 'Malaysia, truly Asia.' And when you come this way don't hesitate to contact me.
