Common Name The Unique Dendrobium

Flower Size .6" [1.5 cm]

Found in Sarawak and Sabah Borneo in lower to upper montane mossy forests at elevations of 1200 to 2600 meters as a small to large sized, cool to cold growing epiphyte with clustered, suberect, shiny yellow, dark banded at nodes, somewhat zigzag, flattened and enveloped by clasping leaf sheaths and carrying many, distichous, rigid, lanceolate, abruptly tapering to a slender apex leaves that blooms in the fall on a very short, successively single flowered inflorescence arising from tufts of dry scales towards the apex of each leafless and leafy canes with the flowers held close to the stem

Many references have this species as D ventripes but they have been found to be conspecific and so this name takes precedence.

Synonyms Ceraia ventripes (Carr) M.A.Clem. 2003; Dendrobium ventripes Carr 1935
