    Default Some weird Pomatocalpa and Cirrhopetalum

    This Pomatocalpa is not described in both Cootes' The orchids of the Philippines 2001, and Valmayor's Orchidiana Philippiniana 1984.
    Yet it is not so rare.


    The following Cirrhopetalum, aka Bulbophyllum bootanoides, is not described from the Philippines in both references as well. I relied on the identification of the nursery...:-)

    They are certainly weird ones! I marvel that the orchid family is so incredibly diverse...but...well, I can't say that I seek to add every member to my own collection.

    But I do love seeing them all and appreciating their weirdness!

    Thanks, Nelson!

    I agree Julie, though I wouldn't and couldn't add all these beauties in my collection, it is nice to members share with us these fascinating plants from all over the world...

    Thanks Nelson!

    Weird? Well, maybe.
    . . . . . . Wonderful? That'd be a big Yes, IMHO.
    These are both new to me, thanks for the intro :^)

    Default Pomatocalpa?

    I have strong reason to believe that this is not a Pomatocalpa.
    I may give you the ID if you are interested to answer some of the question I posted ( as you said).

    I think JIm Cootes told me as much about it about a month ago, but I never got around to look for my earlier posts.
