    A lot of thanks to all.

    Collecting exotic native Philippine plants is one of my vices and others were travelling to other places and landscaping. lol

    Ron, I can't take closed up photos at this time due to my busy working schedule. Maybe again someday, I'll do it again taking photos showing spectacular inflorescence.

    Bulbophyllum saurocephalum and Amesiella philippinensis are new record of distribution of species in southern Philippine island of Mindanao. The original geographical range in the Philippines was Nueva Viscaya, Luzon island.

    There are more discoveries I have to discover somewhere in the island from the south.

    I'm not only looking after orchids but all the crown jewels of the Philippine rainforests.

    Attached in this thread is my illustration of new species that I should be sending a herbarium specimen to the National Museum of Natural History-Philippines for formal taxon description. This species is new to science, I can't show the original pictures until it is validly published.

    Wow, Derek. I'm barely managing to get the correct tags on my really common hybrids, and you're off doing Darwinian research!

    I assume you did the drawing as well - very impressive. You must be a treasure to the orchid world of the Philippines.

    I'm just a mere commerce graduate and plant hobbyist, just curious of those living things around.
    I loved drawing illustration of plants and animals or even a scenery, just one of my hobbies.

    My concentration is all about investigation of Philippine flora, I loved the works of the past botanists in the Philippines: Quisumbing, Elmer, Merrill, Co, Ames, etc...
    Some of the southern parts of the Mindanao island, Philippines is underexplored to scientist.
    I managed to travel different areas and gave valuable information to the scientific community and local authorities of botany in the Philippines.

    A lot of effort has to be done but it's too expensive.
