Common Name or Meaning The Crocker Mountain Range Jejewoodia [A mountain range in Sabah Borneo]

Flower Size .4" [1 cm]

Found in Sabah Borneo in lower montane forests at elevations of 1200 to 1700 meters as a mini-miniature sized, cool growing epiphyte with pendent, simple to branching stems enveloped completely by imbricating leaf bases carrying, distichous, ensiform, laterally compressed, acute, succulent, hard-textured leaves that blooms in the late summer and early fall on a lateral, axillary, sessile, successively single flowered inflorescence

CAUTION The species photo above fits the existing key for the genus as it has a saccate lip and no spur. That does not mean that it could not an undescribed spurless Jejewoodia. It does not conform to the lip apex of the type but otherwise it is a good fit. Please use with caution!!!!.
