Eria subclausa Schltr. 1912 SECTION Hymenaria Type Drawing by © Schlechter and The Swiss Orchid Foundation at the Jany Renz Herbaria Website
Common Name The Almost Closed Eria [refers to the flower not opening well]
Found in New Guinea at elevations around 600 to 950 meters as a small to medium sized, warm growing epiphyte with flexuous, puberulous, rhizome giving rise to cylindrical pseudobulbs carrying 3 to 4, erect-patent, lanceolate-ligulate, obtuse, narrowly petiolate base leaves that blooms in the late winter and spring on a lateral, shortly pedunculate, laxly 10 to 15 flowered inflorescence.
Schlechter states that the partially open flowers are snow white.
