    Peruvian orchid party (with ID requests)

    Forgot to add a few photos from the Tambopata River area. Habenaria sp. (growing as an emergent at the margin of an oxbow lake) Potentially Microchilus (hey Lance?) but definitely within the Goodyerinae. Growing in terra firme in deep shade. Detail of above species. I was a few...

    And I close with Masdevallia veitchiana, which I finally found after sundown in the rain on our final night on the Inca Trail.

    These were found in the eastern Andes along the Inca Trail. I welcome any ideas about identity! Aa sp. Aa sp. (I think this is the same as the previous species, but I don't know for sure) Pterichis leucoptera (I think) Pterichis silvestris (I think)

    Authority on Peruvian orchids?

    I wish! Unfortunately, we only had the bare-bones tour package (it was part of a larger tour). Had we known how enamored we would be with the area, we would've definitely nixed our extra days in Lima and ponied up for some more in-depth tours of the area. As a consolation, we at least got to see...

    Tambopata Ecolodge. Our guide, Delford, was a fantastic birder. Sent from my XT1030 using Tapatalk

    Authority on Peruvian orchids?

    Lance, I thought of you but for some reason thought you were in northeast Peru. I actually flew into PM before catching a canoe up the Tambopata. Next time! I'll try to post a couple Tampobata photos today. One is of a mystery terrestrial (maybe Microchilus) and the other is a very large...

    Initial Identification of a New Species

    Right. Fortunately, our slipper orchids tend to fall in to easy geographic patterns: IE Paphiopedilum in Asia and Phragmipedium in Central and South America. However, if a slipper orchid were discovered in South America that exhibited characteristics of Paphiopedilum (and grouped with...

    Authority on Peruvian orchids?

    Hey everyone. I apologize for not visiting the forum in, uh, three years (121236 unread posts!) I just got back from two weeks in Peru. I photographed a few dozen orchids, but I'm having some trouble with identification. For instance, I photographed four different species within the...

    Paphiopedilum sugiyamanum

    It looks like it's a bit stolonous?
