I haven't been a very huge Nep guy...YET! If I were to pick one at this moment, it most likely would be a N. hamata just for those Ceph like teeth. But I must say, John. Your collection of Neps look very cool among your other CP's. Nice to see Spring going well down under. Nice growing :)!

18 years is a long time. I would have that much too!... if I had the money! I noticed that you had labeled a Lowii x Vietchii picture, but there is no picture there, is that an accident? It would be awesome to see that. The label is right below your aristolochiodes.

Great collection John! I always drool at the videos... but these close-ups are great :) One of the local Nep stores is about 45mins or so away for me that I've gotten some Neps from, and I suspect they'd be drooling over your collection as well. The lowii doesn't even look real, wow. I really like the maxima x trudamiensis and thorleii x spectabilis.
