    Thanks BD.

    This plant is under investigation, maybe this is undescribed or rarely seen species.

    Looks like a relative of dend acerosum. Presumably belongs to the section Rhopalanthe, like crumenatum..

    Thanks.

    The character of this species is somewhat stems are branching like Calcarifera Dendrobiums but the flowers and leaves are related to Rhopalanthe Dendrobiums.

    Ceraia mindanaense, formerly known as Dendrobium mindanaense.

    Certainly not a Dendrobium mindanaense, it has a thick branching stems and has no extended stem.
    Stems of Dendrobium mindanaense are more delicate than this species.
    The flowers are larger than Dendrobium mindanaense.

    I have a Dendrobium mindanaense at home which is far different from this species I show.

    I'll be submitting a holotype of this plant to the herbarium of National Museum of the Philippines for examination.

    In terms of flower morphology, what made your plant distinct from Ceraia mindanaense? Remember that botanical taxonomy is based on the sexual character of plants because they are more stable than the vegetative features.

    If you happen to get to know someone from the National Museum who knows orchids, please let me know.
