    Question Can anyone identify this orchid?

    This orchid was found at a cut downed tree on 18 March 2006, when I went to orchid searching in a small jungle between Batu Kawa and Bau area in Kuching, Borneo Island. The leaves of this orchid is about 2 cm and it is starting to flower. It has yellow flowers. It looks like Phaleonopsis, but it is too small for that size. Please help to identify. Please contact me at ycwee@yahoo.com or tel: +60162808170

    Today, I have taken some of the pictures again. I planted it at my Bonsai tree. The flower bud is still not opened yet, though it has been 11 days. I uploaded to a webpage. Please take a look. Thanks

    Default Orchids of Borneo

    You may consider looking for a copy of Orchids of Borneo.

    It's not easy to give an ID because your flower is not yet open but when I looked at the 3rd vol by Chan, there's one that may be of match to your species.

    Hi,

    I think the plant has been identified as Pteroceras emarginatum, or, according to KEW database, Ascochilus emarginatus. Actually, currently on top of my wish list
