~Lepanthes mastodon Luer 1983 - See also Lepanthes manabina Dodson 1980 Photo by Jay Pfahl

Another Flower L cf mastodon? Photo by Lourens Grobler

Found in Colombia

The first photo is an exact match to Luers original descriptions of L mastodon [and photo in Native Colombian Orchids Vol 2 COS] and subsequent redescription of L manabina in Icones Pleurothalidinarum XIV.

The second photo is not close to Dodson's description of L manabina nor Luer's L mastodon or subsequent L manabina description in Icones Pleurothalidinarum XIV.
