Lepanthes sp – New species discovered by Daniel Jiminez.

February 22, 2011

When I was in Costa Rica in November and December 2010 me and Daniel Jiminez did a little expedition in the Cerro Durika area.

One day Daniel found this Lepanthes species 3 meters up in a tree. First Daniel thaught it was Lepanthes edwardsii but not long after looking at internet we could see that this species was NOT edwardsii. 3 plants were found at this location. The first pictures were taken at Durika Community, on the plant used as Holotype for the species description.
