    Default Tiny orchid specie from Borneo

    I've got this tiny orchids as an spec. from Borneo. I've looked in the books and think it's an Jejewoodia. This small genus simply consist just of two species, jiewhoei and crocerensis. Which one I have, no idea.
    The flowers are just 4 mm long, pure white and not fragrant.

    Hi Mietek,

    Maybe this plant is a Microsaccus species.

    All the best,

    Mietek,

    please allow this note: Genus currently comprises 6 species.

    All 6 species are described from Sabah. Yours might be J. rimauensis. Malesian Orchid Journal Vol.5 (2010), p. 60 ff.

    Well, as I know the leaves of Microsaccus species doesn't have smooth surface, leaves are somehow rough; it seems that the leaves of your plant have smooth surface.

    Hi Mietek,

    Great photos of this tiny bloom! I think it could be an Jejewoodia sp. I have J. rimauensis, this species looks different then yours. Look at the Malesian OJ Vol5. There are described some species, but I think no one fits. Microsaccus wenzelii appears only on the Phillipines, but perhaps an other Microsaccus species? There are many described. I also don't know the difference between Microsaccus and Jejewoodia.

    Hi
    I feel that, according to the reference keys in Malesian Orchid Journal Vol 5 2010, this must be Jejewoodia crockerensis [drawing in Malesian Orchid Journal Vol 1 2008] because it has no spur to the lip. It is possible that it is another species that as of yet is not named but according to the key that exists now this has to be J crockerensis because of the lack of a spur. I would like to add these photos to Internet Orchid Species Photo Encyclopedia if I am allowed. I hope you all are aware of my site. Non commercial and free for all to use.
