EARLY

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, warm to cool growing epiphyte with pendent, simple to branching stems enveloped compeltely 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 This species fits the existing key for the genus as it has a saccate lip and no spur. That does not mean that it could be as of yet undescribed spurless Jejewoodia. It does not conform in the lip apex but otherwise is a good fit. Please use with caution.
