    That is a strange looking flower . IOSPE tells me that the genus is in the aeridiniae, and I see that there is no listing of this species there .
    here's your chance for eternal fame ! Send a piccy to Jay.

    Geoff, you are right it's an monopodial orchid. This species called in the past Macropodanthus philippinensis, but is renamed to cootesi. I think in IOSPE exist already a pictures of this species but even as Macr. philippinensis.

    You are right ; looks very similar, certainly.
    Almost as odd as my Gongora which I posted a few weeks ago.

    Macropodanthus philippinensis and Macropodanthus cootesii are very different species.

    Macropodanthus cootesii was only described in December 2010, by Dr. George Tiong, in the German journal Die Orchidee.

    The differences between the 2 species are explained there.

    Bruce can you please correct the spelling of the specific epithet to cootesii (double i) please?

    All the best,

    Jim Cootes
