    Default Thrixspermum orchid species of the Philippines

    I have encounter another orchid which is Thrixspermum growing along the coffee trees (Coffea liberica), I don't recognized its name.
    When I gather this delicate plant from the area, all the flower buds aborted and I didn't take closed up shot of an open flower and it's difficult since I have taken this by my own cellphone camera.

    Does anyone knows its specimen name?

    Hope Jim answers this plant name.

    He's already in the Philippines right now for the Philippine Orchid Society show.

    Nope.
    Last year I was working in Manila, I'd like to meet Jim and like to discussed things particularly orchids but I missed. Now I'm at home, Cagayan de Oro City.

    Nice found! I think it could be Thrixspermum merguense, but have to see an open flower to be sure.

    Thanks.

    I'm confident with your identification as it matched the flower stems.

    Hi Randy,

    I will be at the POS show on August 14. Come up and say hello if you see me. I am an old Australian guy with a white beard, wearing a brown hat and usually carrying a big Canon camera.

    All the best from Leyte,

    Jim Cootes
