    Default Malleola orchid species of the Philippines

    This plant I found grows along the moist mossy branches, I don't have the name.

    Could somebody identify this plant?

    HI there it looks very similar to Malleola dentifera J.J. Sm. 1927

    Some information

    Found in Thailand, Borneo, Vietnam, penninsular Malaysia and Sumatra at elevations around 700 meters as a medium sized, hot to warm growing epiphyte with elongate pendulous stems with the apices arising enveloped by basal leaf bearing sheaths carrying, several, narrowly lanceolate, oblique apically, slightly undulate leaves that blooms in the summer on an axillary, lateral to pendulous, dense and many flowered, 3.6" [9.1 cm] long, ribbed inflorescence that blooms in the summer with an axillary, short, several [10] flowered inflorescence.

    It may not necessarily be a native from Philippines

    Thanks.

    I take the specimen for photo shots and for identification.

    Maybe next time I'll be able to have them once my garden is fixed.

    A confirmation from Jim Cootes that this plant belongs to Cleisostoma but we are trying to look over its name or maybe a new species.

    Thanks to Jim.
