Common Name The Club-Carrying Liparis

Flower Size

Found in Java with many long, tapering, close set pseudobulbs carrying 2, linear-lancoelate, obtuse leaves that blooms on a slender, laxly many flowered inflorescence.

CAUTION I have no way of verifying this determination so plese use with caution. There are no good references out there for this species. It is supposed to be similar to L viridiflora but with a lax inflorescence.

Synonyms Leptorchis clavigera (Ridl.) Kuntze 1891
