A. guttatus is unique in the genus by virtue of its unusual flower color -- yellowish green to brownish green on the outside of the flower with bright crimson markings on the face and interior of the corolla.  It was collected by Paddy Woods of the Royal Botanical Garden Edinburgh in Papua New Guinea, in the early 1970s.

A closeup of the flowers provides an even better view of the spectacular and beautiful markings.
