    Default Still some more Christmas bloomers


    Renanthera matutina has this symmetrical star shape that is perhaps fitting for Christmas.

    Dendrobium serratilabium is endemic to the provinces of Aurora, Laguna, Rizal, and Quezon in the island of Luzon. The specific name refers to the labellum that is spathulate, and deeply toothed around the edge. Sometimes it reminds me of an alligator’s gaping jaws.

    Malleola constricta in endemic to most major islands of the Philippines. The spike is about 4 inches long, with the blooms less than half a cm. across.

    I have posted pictures of Cirrhopetalum trisetum before, but I have not noticed the hair-like appendage at the top of the dorsal sepal, with a thickened tip. This time it is evident. Two of the buds had blasted on this inflorescence. The plant is found in the provinces of Benguet, Nueva Vizacaya, and Nueva Ecija in the big island of Luzon, Philippines.
