Deep shade Warm

Common Name The Serpentine Corybas [refers to its occuring in and around serpentine rocks]

Flower Size

Found in Borneo in lower montane forests in thin soil and in moss carpets on serpentine rocks on ridgetops at elevations around 700 to 800 meters as a miniature sized, warm growing terrestrial.

"Closely allied to the familiar C. pictus but differing in the colouration of the lip and the two low swellings on the lip at the mouth of the throat, which is thus shallowly V-shaped rather than flat or concave." Ent, Wood 2013
