    AWESOMENESS! is there any chance it is related to the genus drymoanthus? i have a drymoanthus adversus (i think) and the monopodial structure and flower structure are almost exact.
    Thanks, Jordan

    Jordan, Hymenorchis and Drymoanthus, both, are monopodial orchids, but I think Drymoanthus is more related to Sarcochilus. Also the distribution of those two genus is different. Hymenorchis PNG and Drymoanthus New Zealand and Australia.
    By the way, I would be happy to have one Drymoanthus.

    sorry mitek, its only found here, aussie has no species of drymoanthus.......so CITES doesnt allow any out and the government , rather stupidly, have illegalised the collection and propagation of natives, when a fair few are on the brink of extinction. seeing as the distribution of drys, sarchs and hyms is nz, aus, png, it makes sense they are closely related as NZ came of Aussie, and pNG came off aussie too, so there is a link.

    Simply stunning. Nature worked overtime producing something this delicate and airy. This should be the flower of angels. AL
