More eulophias - great! Fine shots added. Do let us know if you find
Eulophia callichroma. It is a species I have subjected here to rather drier
conditions than what you appear to be going through. For how any months the
grasslands remain green would also be worth finding out.

Well worth reporting all this.

I have added to the wiki my second page of plants seen in the Maclear
district. This page includes more orchids. We saw five different and often
amazing species of Eulophia on the same day and a Habenaria species. Photos
on the wiki previously from this district included a Holothrix and several
Gladiolus species probably photographed in February. We saw Gladiolus
inandensis, but not the other two. I've added some leaves of unidentified
Eriospermum and Ledebouria species and a wonderfully hairy Hypoxis costata.

I'm not sure why Eulophia welwitschii was chosen over all the other
wonderful Eulophia species to be a favorite of the day. Perhaps it was
because someone spotted it on the day before growing in a marshy area as we
were driving to our location in the rain and we weren't at all sure we were
going to be able to come back and actually see it up close the next day.

I hope you enjoy the pictures.
