David, I like this species with its brainy patterns on the pouch very much and this is an extraordinarily good clone of it and well photographed, too. 👌

Good form of typical color. Well flowered though!

Very nice, venustum, David!

As they say, Rudolf, it's all in the eye - or maybe in this case more precise, in the mind of the beholder! I really love this species and the reticulation of the pouch, but it has always led my thoughts more in the direction of a cross between cooked cod roe: https://fjordrejen.dk/?p=10437 and a close up of another pouch, namely the scrotum (pardon my french - though, I will in this latter instance spare you the photo example! ;) )

Indeed Jens, it is. Your examples as well are approbriate.
