    Derek,

    The plant in the link above was photographed by Ed de Vogel, in the Philippines and it is not Dendrobium heterocarpum.

    Will someone, PLEASE, tell me how to put a picture on this forum. Then you will see the true Dendrobium heterocarpum.

    Default Dendrobium heterocarpum and D. rhombeum

    Randy, thank you for your help. I hope this works.

    If this picture ends up on the forum the top flower is Dendrobium heterocarpum and the bottom picture is Dendrobium rhombeum. If you cannot see the differences between the 2 species then I give up.

    If Den. heterocarpum doesn't occur in the Philippines then I'm just curious as to why Jim mentioned in his book, The Orchids of the Philippines this species as being found here?

    "Habitat and Distribution: Dendrobium heterocarpum is widespread, being found in India, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand, Peninsular Malaysia, Vietnam, Laos, Indonesia, Borneo and Sulawesi. In the Philippines it has been found in Albay, Benguet, Ilocos, Mountain Province, Nueva Ecija, Nueva Vizcaya, Rizal and Sorsogon on Luzon; Oriental Mindoro on Mindoro island; and Davao del Sur in Mindanao. I grows as an epiphyte at elevations over 1,000 metres." - pages 78-79, Jim Cootes The Orchids of the Philippines

    Hmmmm ..... makes it more confusing although I must say that I can clearly see the difference between the two plants in the photo.

    Hi Jojo,

    That was before I studied the complex of species closely. I just believed what previous authorities had written, without checking things out for myself. I know differently now, that all which has been written beforehand is not necessarily factual.

    Thanks Jim!

    Which brings to my mind another question - Are you coming out with an updated edition of your book? I'm sure there have been a lot of changes since then and perhaps more photographs? I'd sure want to have a copy handy 'coz I usually use your book as reference material (specially the photos) whenever I acquire some local species that I am unsure of.

    Cheers!

    Hi Jojo,

    When The Orchids of the Philippines was published in 2001, it had about 338 species. Since then I have continued to add species and now there are almost 750 species contained. The problem is to find a publisher, as Times Editions are not interested in publishing the book again. I have a couple of options and once I have reached 750 I will seek a publisher more vigorously.

    Thanks for your interest and kind words.

    Jim Cootes
