    Does anyone have a book with a written description of Drch. anfractum?

    I've never seen a picture of it (that wasn't actually Drch. cootesii) and want to know if they are related or similar.

    Where is this plant from, Marni? I checked "Orchids of Java," "...of Sumatra", "...of Borneo," (Dendrobium and Dendrochilum addition of the former) "...of Sarawak," and "Wild Orchids of Thailand" and did not find an entry.

    Sorry.

    I think it is from the Philippines. I checked an old book, but don't have the big Philippine Orchid book.
