The Clawed Chelonistele {chelonistele unguiculata carr}

The Chelonistele unguiculata carr is found in Brunei and Sarawak, Borneo, in moss forests at elevations of 1100 to 1400 meters. It is a small sized epiphyte and bears 4 to 8 flowers on a 13 cm long inglorescence.  I like the whitish translucent petals.
