Guarianthes Skinneri
originally uploaded by Allendale.
Costa Rica’s national flower. Re-classified with the name “Guarianthes Skinnerii”. Was formerly named “Cattleya Skinnerii until it was found that it wasn’t realy a cattleya, and was renamed Guarianthes so to relate to the name “Guaria” , which is the local popular name.
