    LOL. The end of the column looks like an insect or one of the big-eyed aliens commonly seen in science fiction movies. Lovely coloration.

    Very nice. I unfortunately killed one. It was only described 20 years ago. Native of Vietnam. It was named after Eric Christienson. He was a character of a botanist. Unfortunately, he passed 2 years ago.
