    I have a plant of this, not yet flowered , bought after finding it on a list and looking at IOSPE. I see that Jay gives the meaning of the name as "the insect bearing Pelatantheria" although the usual way these things work I would have thought that " the Pelatantheria which looks like an insect" would be more accurate definition. But I wonder what old Reichenbach senior ( the naming botanist) had in mind ? I can't see the faintest resemblance to any insect, anywhere !

    I have had this for a couple of weeks now. I was pleased with the plant when it arrived. It lives in the orchidarium.

    It is a winter bloomer, so when it blooms next December, I'll start a new thread with pics.
