Beautiful plants, nature really never stops surprising us with specimens of carnivorous flora to produce flowers and vivid colors.

Best regards,

Rodrigo

Really great, thanks for sharing them. I was also wondering about the substrate. Is there more organic matter beneath the surface, or is it sandy for several feet down? Also, were Setocoris present?

Cheers,

Greg

I didn't get to dig down at this site to see what was in and under the sandy surface, from what Allen Lowrie said who was with us , its just all very deepish sand area ,so sorry cant answer your question properly .

the ones i saw were mainly pygmaea in this area , we found thousands of pygmy's on the trip and Allen found ,he found few new specie as well on that trip . was not so interested in them at that time so dint take many photos of the pygmy's unfortunately .

this is what was there
