Ceratosylis heterophylla Philippine ceratos Orchid

Ceratostylis heterophylla- Philippine’s newest Ceratostylis

I noticed that there are 4 threads here dedicated to Philippine ceratos, so I hope the folks don’t mind if I throw another one 😀

I described Ceratosylis heterophylla from plants found in Central Luzon almost 4 years ago (Feb. 27, 2008), although it wasn’t published until last year, at the Aug-Sept issue of the Australian Orchid Review. The species name echoes the unusual leaf variation exhibited by this species; it’s easy to mistake two non-flowering plants as belonging to two different species.
