Passiflora in THX Video
I have been thinking about writing about Passiflora and associated insects (particularly Heliconid butterflies) for a while, when I saw this trailer for THX before a film I wanted to watch. I'm pretty sure it's based on Passiflora caerulea.
I work on projects related to technology and taxonomy at the Natural History Museum, and as an advisor for the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature. My interests are in entomology (stick insects, cockroaches and insect acoustics) and how technology can change the way research is done in biology and museums. Big fan of open access, open data and open hardware.
