    Very nice, similar to one I have but yours has a much darker dorsal.. mine, if I remember correctly, had a pale pink background with dark maroon stripes on the dorsal. Will have to look it up.

    Remember the trick about the red pigmentation on the leaf base. This one was nice and dark on the leaves.
