    That's an orchid? The flowers are not zygomorphic and it appears to have a bunch of anthers in the center, I think the caption is on the wrong picture.

    "The other new plant species include one in the aspidistra family, which produces a black flower and can subsist in low light"

    I think you are right.

    Yeh.
    Thanks for posting! I love this kind of stuff!

    Theres a photo gallery of some of the new species here. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/n...res/index.html
    Their photo of the black flower indeed lists it as a aspidistra
    Some samples. Visit the site for descriptions.



    that makes no logic
