    Default Coelogyne usitana

    Endemic to the island of Mindanao. The photos I've seen has the lip more bright red, hence I was a bit surprised with this reddish-brown coloration. Appears not to open much, and faces downward. :-(
    Still, I think it is quite striking.

    Default Thank you, ladies and gentleman.

    I forgot to add one tidbit, the plant was officially reported and named only in 2001.

    The species's flower is usually bowing down! It's common to all.
    Nice color for this one.
