The Kinabalu Entomophia

Entomophia kinabaluensis


small epiphytic orchid, grass like leaves

I haven't seen an orchid flower quite like this one. Not sure if it opens are more or this is it. I found this and a few other orchids on a fallen over tree. Mountain near Pensiangan.

Thanks GreenBugs. It might be Spiranthes, but this was epiphytic whereas most Spiranthes are terrestrial.

very nice find and pictures. The orchid looks like a Spiranthes species although it's a bit difficult to get the exact species.
