    Default Monophyllum sp. in Kuala Lumpur

    in a very big cave north of Kuala Lumpur I took these pictures. These plants grow inside the caves, they never get rain.
    I think this sp. is widespread, I found them also in caves in Sarawak / North Borneo.

    PS:
    the correct name of the Genus is Monophyllaea. Perhaps this spec. is M. horsfieldii: http://www.gesneriads.ca/monophyllaea02.htm

    Hi peter, agreed with you it's very widespread. I saw some ( in sarawak ) have white streaks near the leaves margin, i supposed they are the same species?

    Michael Lo says it is Monophyllaea glauca:

    My photo of the plant in Batu Caves seem to be a different species, perhaps M. horsfieldii.
