    I got this super miniature from Afri Orchids last year. So it is a recent acquisition. I forgot to include a scale, but it is small; the leaf length is only 1cm long, and the flower diameter is about 1-2mm. It is one of the smallest Angraecum, I believe. I think it is a correct ID, but I didn't attempt to dissect the flowers because they are so small. I had to use Olympus 30mm/f3.5 macro lens instead of my favorite 60mm/f2.8 macro lens to get the extra magnification. It seems to be doing ok at cool-end of intermediate temp, but the plant looks quite fragile. I hope I'll see the flowers again.

    I've never heard of that one. Fred Hillerman would be proud of you.

    I am amazed at your collection of obscure little gems. You do a great job of growing and photographing them.
