    Default Ceratostylis heterophylla- Philippine's newest Ceratostylis

    I noticed that there are 4 threads here dedicated to Philippine ceratos, so I hope the folks don't mind if I throw another one

    I described Ceratosylis heterophylla from plants found in Central Luzon almost 4 years ago (Feb. 27, 2008), although it wasn't published until last year, at the Aug-Sept issue of the Australian Orchid Review. The species name echoes the unusual leaf variation exhibited by this species; it's easy to mistake two non-flowering plants as belonging to two different species.

    The flowers shape is total diferent to any I know. I guess, the flowers are as small as at Ceratostilis senilis.

    The segments in heterophylla don't spread as much as senilis', and they typically measure 3 mm across by 4 mm high. The largest senilis flower I have measured is 7 mm across. But I would guess that they are around the same size if we flatten their respective flowers.
