    Default NOID vandaceous species

    Some weeks ago I visited a friend from another state and he took me to see a species fancier. Very impressed with his bulbophyllum [including 2 from Papua New Guinea] and phalaenopsis collection. Among his phal were some fantastic varieties of violacea and bellina and a particular plant of Phal amboinensis with a bloom of outstanding shape and colour.

    However in this thread I would appreciate any help to identify this noid specie in his collection. He assured me it is a specie he collected himself from the jungle on a a hill near his house in Sungai Siput, Perak, Malaysia. The flower is reddish orange and measures 1" [2.5cm]. Judging from the spur at the base of the lip, the red-orange colour and relatively small flowers it could be an ascocentrum but the area is bit south of the normal asco range. The plant has a rather sprawling growth habit.

    Gorgeous coloring. Could it be a species of Renanthera?

    Yup looks like a Renanthera, probably a natural hybrid.

    I'm going to have to buy a bib! Too pretty....I love the Renanthera, and I agree with the others. That is what I first thought of when I saw it. I think they are cool looking. Great pics...thanks for sharing!

    I agree with everyone about it being both beautiful and some form of Renanthera.

    Thanks everyone for the comments and I agree that it's gorgeous.It could be a renanthera but look at the prominent spur at the base of the lip of the flower and particularly the protruding spur in the bud stage - both so characteristic of ascocentrum. I do hope someone will make a definite ID of it.

    Ya thats why I think it could be a hybrid of a Renanthera and Ascocentrum.
