Very similar to the species found on the Galapagos – Galápagos passion flower (Passiflora foetida galapagensis)

The resin is impossible for leaf eating insects to traverse, or at least so unpleasant the insect will turn back. This is an efficient pesticide, but when the flower has opened, it is free of such defenses, and can thus be devoured before it has been pollinated.
