    Nelson, if it were microscopic, which this little guy practically is, you'd capture a lovely photo of it!

    When is Jim Cootes contemplating the next revision of his book?

    Jim Cootes has just sent word that this is actually Schoenorchis paniculata, previously not described from the Philippines.

    He hasn't mentioned word of when the second edition would be out. He is continuously revising it.

    I will edit the first post to reflect this new information so when people are searching for it, they can find the correct bloom.
