    Hi Derek,

    I saw these plants in Misamis Oriental, a few years back, but I was unable to get specimens. Hence I was not able to do a description.

    By the way, my book, Philippine Orchid Species, will be published by September this year. I am very excited, that finally, my book will see the light of day.

    All the best,

    Jim Cootes

    Hi Randy,

    The book will be published by Goodwill Bookstore, and I will be in Manila in September, for the launch of the book. So if you are in the right place at the right time I will gladly sign the book for you.

    All the best,

    Jim Cootes

    Thanks Jim.

    Your book will be a great reference for us since many areas in the Philippines are still unexplored.
    Estimated 35% botanical species were discovered and described, and 65% remained mysterious and undescribed.
    Only few biologists were able study in limited areas were no conflict.

    Hope I can get a copy and chance to travel in Manila to meet you.
    I'm quite busy with my research of potential ornamental plants of the Philippine rainforest within Mindanao.
