Wild orchid growing abundantly on sunny and dry rocky cliffs. Seems sympodial, flowers are tiny, insignificant, but the chains of orange pseudobulbs I have interest. even for a genus name I will be greatly thankful.

I'm pretty sure its a Dendrochilum. I did find mention of one with orange pseudobulbs in Sumatra but that's all I found, a mention.

I'm going to consult with someone who is smarter than I. Smiling

@Australis, please answer the phone...

I agree with Daisy that it is a Dendrochilum. Identifying the species may be difficult, however, as attested to by this website: http://dendrochilum.com/page2....

@ DaisyI and Australis, thank you very much for the ID. It's very great to know this ID, since I will collect those plants. The site is under road construction, many of these wild plants will be destroyed.
