tsuh yang,

Yes, my Ulearum is sagittatum courtesy of David Scherberich. Yours is a new 
species? (Can you see me drooling already, my skin is a delicate shade of 
green.....). Regarding the smell of sumawongii the phenomenon of odours 
actually increasing or changing with distance from the source is a common one 
and occurs in other organisms too. My other specialty is fungi and several 
stinkhorn fungi (Phallus species) smell completely different at a distance 
than they do closeup (foul closeup, of hycinth from afar). Perhaps some 
change occurs when the molecules are diffused through the air. I believe Amyl 
acetate, which is used in the food industry, also tastes and smells very 
differently depending upon the concentration.
