CAUTION I have no way of verifying this determination myself. All references cite the type only and no other collections, seems bizarre that Eric Hunt was able to photograph this orchid as a landscape plant at a Bornean National Park. Odd but not impossible. Eric had Jeffery Woods confirm the ID for him so I am sure that he has it right.
