    Well thats interesting, all the books i have on my lap and most of the sites on the net show a different flower....?? who knows....

    Now according to a new book i have here, O gladiatus looks like some alien spaceship! i must admit, it looks so awesome....It may be O. inflexus, but another possibilty is O. dolobratus. After seeing that pic, it is NOT O. gladiatus lol

    You're probably right guys, I doubt it is gladiatus. Tom posted some nice photos of Ornithocephalus inflexus in june, I think mine is the same.
    It is intermediate to warm growing species, nothing special I'd say.
