I stand corrected on this post. It's not a caratinga (Dioscorea dodecaneura) from the sweet potato family. Dr. Valdely had shown me a caratinga on our walk around the reception center and I made the mistake of thinking it was the same as the plant shown in the attached image. I've been watering at the mouth for a long time wanting to know the name of this beautiful plant, thus I jumped the gun on naming it. Sorry, that's what biodiversity is all about. A lot of things looking like other things.
