An orange nectar bat (Lonchophylla robusta) sipping nectar, head in contact with anthers at a Marcgravia nepenthoides flower (Marcgraviaceae) in Costa Rica. This is a woody vine that ascends high into the forest canopy. This is a rare and widely dispersed plant, making it an unlikely candidate for cross-pollination by non-flying animals. Pollination
