Oeceoclades gracillima

An orchid native to Madagascar with beautiful maroon and black, shimmering leaves. This is one of the species I'll be including in my molecular phylogenetic study of its subtribe, which is why I'm happy it flowered so I can make a voucher specimen for the herbarium! Obtained from Michel Orchid Nursery at the orchid show and sale at Longwood Gardens in March 2012.
