    Hi Nelson,

    What is the part of the flower that curves over the top there called? It looks like one of those fish that have that little thing out in front of them to attract smaller fish so it can eat them! I really like the color in this one, but everyone knows I am a nut for blue/purple/green blooms.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Oh, ok. I just thought it might have a name other than dorsal sepal. Thanks for your help, Daniel.

    This bulbo wants to be pollinated by smaller fish. I refer to the dorsal sepal on this one as fish bait...
