    Default Hippeophyllum wenzelii

    Hi folks,

    this species is endemic to Leyte/Samar. It grows at almost sea level of up to 700mtr asl. If not in flower it can be easily mistaken for an Oberonia species, if it wasn't for the longer rhizomes too.

    Cheers!

    Great miniature species! Indeed a bit like an Oberonia.
