    im not suprised, as only two species are found, both in New Zealand. I think its of the same family as sarcochilus.

    Very similar to sarcs, and as (im sure) sarcs extend into the equatorial region, this is of the same family. Also, the plants in general very closely resemble sarcochilus, myself mistaking adversus for sarc. hartmanii! all the while i was wondering who put it on the tree trunk as they dont grow wild in NZ!

    Great pics Zain!
    Especially I like this Dendro leonis with its tiny flower, which I have in my collection and it is great to see how it grows in the wild.

    P1 I think this is the best nursery for Acampe species, I counted more than 20 seedlings on the same branch together with mature plants.
    P2 to P4 maybe Pteroceras species.
