Finding Drosera condor on the Peru/Ecuador Border
Carniv. Pl. Newslett. 47(3):105-110
Published September 2018
In late August 2017, I visited the cities of Cuenca and Loja, in southern Ecuador, for work. I’d planned to spend the Labor Day extended weekend exploring that part of the country for carnivorous plants. My holy grail was the Cordillera del Condor on the Ecuador/Peru border, a series of tepui-like sandstone escarpments extending 150 km along a north-south axis, rising up to 2900 m in altitude. Geologically and floristically, the Cordillera del Condor is very different from the Andes.
