  • date of photo  Jun 11, 2014
  • location   Fort Ord (Monterey County, California, US)
  • family Orchidaceae
  • notes   Detail of inflorescense...showing the white+green upper tepals. These plants were growing in semi-shaded pine needle duff, which presumably supports various mycorrhizae that they depend on for initial germination and sustenance.

    I'd been hoping to see this uniquely bicolored & beautiful Piperia for years, and am very grateful to the admirably perceptive and good-natured David Styer (mathematician, birder, and botanist extraordinaire) for making that happen. And also for sharing his french fries! :-)
