Still Waters Posted March 26 #1 Share Posted March 26 (IP: Staff) · A new species of orchid with delicate, glass-like blooms has been discovered by Japanese scientists, who found the pink and white plant hiding in plain sight. Despite its presence in Japan's parks and gardens, it took researchers at Kobe University a decade to confirm that the plant – dubbed the Spiranthes hachijoensis – was a previously unknown species. "It was a surprise to discover a new species of Spiranthes, which is so common that you can see it in parks, gardens, and among potted plants," lead researcher Kenji Suetsugu told AFP Thursday. https://www.sciencealert.com/newly-discovered-species-of-orchid-looks-like-delicate-piece-of-glass-art https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10265-023-01448-6 2 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
