New orchid found in Costa RicaA plant appreciated by Ticos went without a name until the fact that it didn’t match any known species came to light.
The botanist Marco Acuña saw it in a garden of a house in Turrialba. It caught his attention because he was intrigued that it didn’t resemble any other orchid in the Sobralia genus.
He photographed it and sent the picture to colleagues at the Lankester Botanical Garden of the University of Costa Rica. It was identified as indeed being a “new species,” or an old one never before named, and baptized “Sobralia turrialbina.”
