Myrmephytum species - pendent - Waigeo Island

Recommended Posts

This species seems to be related to Myrmephytum "species 1" and the ones from Triton Bay. However the caudex is always pendent hanging with the help of thick roots and it is much more elongated than in species 1.

In comparison, "species 1" is always attaching itself to the tree with its broad base.

The flowers are much more delicate than the flowers of the plants from Triton Bay.
