A New Orchid Species Contains Satan’s Face

A new species of orchid appears to have the face of the devil at the center.


The aptly named Telipogon diabolicus was discovered in southern Colombia and written about in the open access journal PhytoKeys.

As orchids are often considered a symbol of love, it amuses me to no end to think about someone giving this particular flower to a loved one… (Oh, the mixed messages that would send!) But it’s not going to happen. This orchid is already listed as a Critically Endangered species.
