The flower stalk can reach 2-3 m
We meet it very often in the mangroves of the Yucatan Peninsula
I think this is Myrmecophila brysiana
Thanks! I will look forward to it.
Yes of course I could see for any other part of this orchid. In the mangrove there are a lot of sort of epiphytes like bromeliacea and cactacea. Have got a lovely orchid from a swamp savannah of the Biosphere reserve of Sian Ka'an. I will share it
Wonderful! I love Myrmecophila. Do you have any pictures of the whole plant or the plant in it's habitat? I would love to see how these are growing in the mangroves. By the way, did you notice any other orchids or epiphytes in the swamps?
