Orchids again: Cyrtosia javanica (Blume 1825)



This post is a request from my husband.

He (and his team of Universiti Malaysia Sabah students) recently found a new orchid species for Tawau Hills Park in Sabah, previously found elsewhere, but a first for Tawau Hills. Any orchid specialists wanting to know more, or wanting to use the photos, can contact me, and I will send the request on to him.

p.s. in a moment of aberration, I called this a ginger when I first posted (mea culpa!) ...I'm a bird person, ok?

I should tell you again how much I like your nature photos. I, too, am a nature person (plants, birds, anything really).

I think I could forgive you for calling this a ginger. It kinda does look like one (minus the leaves of course).

Is that previously found elsewhere in Sabah, or has it migrated from further afield? (If you can say migrate of a plant species - I don't know la.)

In Sabah, Hrugaar.
