    Default terrestrial orchid no id, philippines

    hi folks,

    another ground orchid in bloom, but no id. the spike is pretty long 50 cm with maybe 100 tiny blooms on it, scent is more like liparis or eria, not all to pleasant, but you know im a sniffer! lol

    any hint?
    cheers

    No, Amey, its not a quiz. Its a game: people that want to play just make their bet and at the end comes the winners prize: big smile on the radio! LOL

    Ron, this is a very cute one and I would've made my bet, but I have no clue what the name is... I've seen photos somewhere before...

    Cute blooms. Good luck with the identification. Maybe Nelson will know?

    hi amey,
    in a way it is a quiz, coz i really dont know which specie or genus it is.
    so far i checked, malaxis, liparis, dendrochilum, eria..., no match found.
