We walked along the river and found some incredible little pleurothallids from the now Panmorfia genus. Along our walk along the Jatunyacu river we found this incredible site called "El Lamedero" where you can see clouds of butterflies and many of them flying around you and resting all over you.
We turned around and try to hike towards a little hill using a path that had been open for wood harvesting. This place is full of very hungry mosquitos that we could not stop walking otherwise they will devour us. The mosquitos sacrificed me a couple times but I was just so eager to find this plant that I could not really care at that moment.
Coming out of the forest, I just checked on some trees and I found one plant with one flower of something that could potentially be S. pleurothallodes. My time was over, I needed to go and get a movilization permit form my plants, go back to Quito and continue exploring for other species in other regions, so this was a beautiful finding.
But NOT so fast
Interesting to try, not sure I could add them to the regular diet unless I get lost in the field again!
