Genyorchis apertiflora Summerh. 1957 Photo by Karl Senghas and his and The Swiss Orchid Foundation at the Jany Renz Herbaria Webpage

Common Name The Open Flowered Genyorchis

Flower Size 1/8"

Found in southern Nigeria

CAUTION This is a confusing genus and the species have not been well sorted in common literature. I have put this species photo here as it fits the name best. It is the most open of the Genyorchis available to me. I do not have the proper references to be sure of any of the determinations for this genus so please use with caution!
