    Default Dendrobium boosii- a new Philippine Dendrobium

    Forumers, I'd like to introduce you to one of the newest additions to the Philippine orchid flora- Dendrobium boosii. This species from Leyte is from section Calcarifera and was described by Jim Cootes and myself at the latest issue of the Australian Orchid Review; it is named in honor of our very own Ron Boos (walingwaling). Cheers Ron!
