    Looks to me like a phillipsii and not rhopalorrachis.

    Phil,
    it has been my first idea as well, but Tuberolabium phillipsii, but until now for me it's native to Philippines. I was told by the vendor, that this plant came from Sulawesi. So I've sent my pictures to Jim Cootes. He has said, it's even rhopalorrachis.
