    Default Cleisostoma sagittatum

    One of the largest mini flowered genera of it's subtribe it is widely distributed over the entire tropical Asia and out to the Philippines and south to Australia. This genus is composed of 100 different, compact, small to medium epiphytes that have flat fleshy leaves or terete leaves. The inflorescence can be short or long, simple or branched, erect or pendulous and always multiflowered. The 3-lobed lip is spurred and has a sort of a foot that is attached to the margins of the side lobes and the short column with a short foot has 4 pollina that are united in 2 round bodies. The genus was established by C. L. Blume in 1825 using Cleisostoma sagittatum as the type species. (from IOSPE)
    The Philippines has at least seven species.

    A mini with branching spikes and so many flowers? You've definitely got my attention. Thank you for sharing; I wasn't familiar with this one.

    I used the spelling that Jim Cootes emailed me. But, you are correct; when I looked at the book, it is spelled "sagittatum".
