    So exciting!:drool: All I got to say is now I got another one I got to track down! Wish the picture was better but it looks awesome from what I can tell. Would be interesting to see when it will be available for purchase from just being discovered.

    Thanx Zach, for bringing this to our attention!

    As I read it, the mention of a colourful pouch is in the general description of the section where this new species falls in. In the table, the authors list the pouch as pure white. I wonder if guttatum occurs in the suroundings of the new spec... And how many plants have been found apart from the type ;)

    Cheers, Carsten
