New orchid species has the face of Satan


 
Christian Nightmares hipped me to this new orchid species appropriately named Telipogon diabolicus which means “devil’s head.” The orchid—with its claw-like petals—is found in a small patch of land in Colombia. Apparently only 30 of the reddish to dark violet-maroon orchids have been discovered so far. The devilish flower is already a Critically Endangered species in the IUCN Red List.

Talk about a fleur du mal... I would love to grow some of these lil’ devils.
