Interesting.  I would have assumed it was from someplace inSuriname, but apparently, not so.On the other hand, there are valid species named after wherethey were first noticed rather than from their native range. Like the greenhouse flatworm, Bipalium kewense.  It is fromthe former French Indochina, but was first noticed byscience in Kew Gardens.Question for ExoticRainforest: does the suffix Hort. alwaysmean it was a horticultural name?  Because I was under theimpression that it applies to some valid species which, atthe time they were named, had been in cultivation longenough that their wild origins were not remembered.Jason HernandezNaturalist-at-Large
