Michael, I've only been to Ecuador once and that was 20 years
ago. So I can't speak with any accuracy, but I did receive this note
today, "There is a true lowland tropical wet
rainforest down near Tinalandia in Ecuador................. so the answer is no
to the proposed question. The Choco certainly is a lowland wet forest
Steve, When I was in
Costa Rica I noticed plenty of Epiphyllums growing on trees in areas of
Tropical Moist Forest. They grow alongside Philodendron,
Rhodospatha, Monstera, Anthurium, Syngoinium etc. etc.
NOT a true rain (pluvial) forest, (Doesnt Colombia contain the only true
lowland rainforest in South America?)... but not exactly a dry forest
