Not same colony

Except for the obvious two, they’re all separate colonies, but from the same logging trail. I should have made them separate observations, but I’m lazy, and pretty sure they’re all L. epidendrum. The variations are due to varying age, and the greenish one was taken after prolonged rainfall. In the future I will make each separate specimen its own observation, as it should be. Sorry for the confusion.

All from same log?

I wonder how you know all these photos are of the same species. Are all these observations of the same colony? If not, then each should have its own observation number. There is a lot of variation shown in your excellent photos. Unless they are all of the same colony, then there might well be more than one species represented.
