Habenaria elatius Ridl. 1912 Photo by Eric Hunt and his Flickr Orchid Photo Website

Part sun

Common Name The Forest Loving Habenaria

Flower Size small

Found in Sarawak Borneo in lowlands .

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.
