Liparis lacerata

Liparis lacerata

I really like the long pendulous inflorescence with many tiny flowers measuring about 1 cm across. This one was photographed at Kipandi Butterfly Park which is about 700 metres above sea level. The park is 36 km from Kota Kinabalu City. The wild orchids are housed in covered nurseries in the flora garden.
