    That photo, by Vic Brown, shows: A Pinguicula gypsicola flower with most of the flower, including the corolla, intact. In that photo the ovary is not visible, it is occluded by the base of the spur (part of the remaining corolla). Only the bottom two corolla lobes (petals) have been torn away, allowing easier access to the underside of the stigma, where the stigma flap covers the anthers (just visible in the photo as a yellowish spot beneath the stigma flap). Stamen are composed of two main parts, anthers containing pollen and the filament. In Vic Brown's photo the filament are easily visible, they frame the opening beneath the stigma and anthers, on the left the stamen filament is partially occluded by cilia from a remaining portion of the corolla.

    All fear violence, all are afraid of death.
    Seeing the similarity to oneself, one should not use violence or have it used.
