As we planned this trip, I was really hoping to see and photograph one of these, and I was very happy to come across quite a number of these at the base of trees in various parts of Tortuguero. The recent rains certainly helped here. And at 1" in size, they were considerably smaller than I anticipated, and I really had to get close to them with my 100mm macro lens to get them to an adequate size in the frame.
