[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The orchid genus Dracula consists of 118 species. The strange name Dracula, literally means "little dragon", referring to the strange aspect of the two long spurs of the sepals. The first Dracula was found by plant hunters in the 1870's

These epiphytic and terrestrial species are distributed in Central and south America and the northwest Andes, almost half in Ecuador alone. They prefer shadow and an even, rather cold, temperature.
