Thanks for the link Kristal. Very interesting plant with a very narrow distribution

Thanks. Unfortunately I don't know what the host tree was in this spotting. However, the Parasitic Plant Connection says it is "parasitic on a wide range of hosts including Calophyllum, Eugenia, Garcinia, Nothofagus, and Terminalia." I included the PPC link in the notes section for this spotting if you're curious. :)
