    Yew, I was told, by my friend, that after tsunamii in 2004, Dendrobium cruentum, became seldom in this area. In total, we could find just three plants.

    I like the nice color on this dendro.

    SE Asia is not hard to reach, but it's easier to Europeans than Americans. The guide I know is organizing a trip to Sulawesi later this year, but, it's a lot time and energy commitment, and flying over the big pond is not something I look forward to.

    Now that you mention the tsunami, I think I have a rough idea of the location - the western coastal area of Peninsular Thailand facing the Adaman Sea. If you google a map you will see that The Langkawi Islands is part of the archipelago of the islands that stretch from N W Peninsular Malaysia (where I live - you may even see my town of Jitra) to the Nicobar Islands in India.Though this area was the hardest hit during the Tsunami of 2004 Langkawi suffered very minor damage and no deaths. Though we have Den farmeri in Langkawi I have not heard of any notable dendrobiums in Langkawi. Langkawi is more famed for its Doritis pulcherrima and Paph niveum which used to grow almost to the water's edge of the sea. Sadly these have all been overcollected. I have even heard from local fishermen of a yellow paph which presumably could be Paph concolor which occurs in Peninsular Thailand. I'd guess that if concolor can be found here then there is even a better chance of finding Paph exul which is common around Krabi on mainland Thailand.

    this pictures I've took in the mountain, close to Takupa, 160 km north of Phuket. There are few small islands, where Dendr. cruentum grows on small threes. I went there with a local collector and we didn't find any plants. He told me, that also all Doritis pulcherrime have been damaged by 2004 tsunami. The remained plants have been collected and sold to Bangkok. After tsunami, people needed money for rebuilding of houses. It's hard bud understandable.
