    I have just found a writting about it.I will rewrite in it entirity.
    2 species of Solenangis are known,S.scandens(Angraecum scandens) and S.clavata(Angraecum clavatum).neither of which appears to be in cultivation at this time .These are rather unusual and interesting epiphytic orchids of West Africa,with small white to greenish-yellow flowers.The genus seems to offer some possibilities to the connoisseur orchidist.Nothing is known of the genetic affinities of Solenangis.Culture,presumably as for Angraecum.

    Reference.
    Encyclopaedia of cultivated orchids Pg 442

    just found....... Microcoelia aphylla (Syn. Solenangis aphylla) (E. Africa & Madagascar) A leafless plant with a climbing stem (up to 30-40cm) and clusters of white flowers tinged with reddish-pink

    and here is a link that I think looks good for you

    http://www.zimbabweflora.co.zw/speci...p?genus_id=449

    Solenangis aphylla- Easy to grow leafless from Madagascar. Here's one not often seen. The flowers are small 3 mm white and deep red. It's grown more for it's foliage, or lack thereof. Unlike many leafless varieties that grow roots out from a central crown, this species creeps along alternately sending roots out the sides of the stem. It always grows straight up, so should be mounted with plenty of room above. Seems to do well in moderate to bright light, intermediate to warm temps. Mounted divisions

    Hi Sake,

    Solenangis is in the Angraecum/Aerangis group of orchids, and it is the accepted name for that genus. It's small - there are only six species, Solenangis aphylla being one of the six.

    Can't tell you much more than that you have the name right!
