    I'd like to see a close-up of the staminode shield -- it looks intriguing.

    The petal hairiness and shape, as well as the dorsal's makes me think if this could be an intermediate between the acmodontum group and cochlos...

    I only got a glimpse of an in-situ pic. I'd say it's closely related to the barbata.
    Argus/acmodotum-ish, but with dorsal with a pink **border**.

    Very intriguing. Can't wait to see the pictures. Do you have any links at the moment?
