I photographed these two wild orchids in Huai Kha Kaeng but have no idea what species they are - can anyone help?

Lovely - you found Seidenfadenia mitrata! It has a very restricted range in Thailand and Burma. Literature claims it was common some 30 years ago, but I have never seen it in the wild. Kindly e-mail exact location to the director of the Orchid Ark in Chiang Mai: d i r e c t o r @dokmaigarden.co.th (I spaced the letter in director to avoid discovery by spam robots).

Cheers, Eric Danell, Dokmai Garden

The second orchid looks like Dendrobium aphyllum. Would you like to become an Orchid Scout? Such people report findings of native orchids, and describe the habitat carefully so that the Orchid Ark can accumulate the knowledge and use it for future outplanting efforts. Kindly e-mail me!
