Please find our first article from Hong Kong (after I joined) attached here with the mail.
We also have merged two classical taxa, Cheirostylis pusilla Lindl. and Cheirostylis malleifera C.S.P.Parish & Rchb. together, with Cheirostylis pusilla as the accepted name.
This is also a new record from Hong Kong.

I went through the paper, it is very nice. Congratulations on the publication.

ORCHIDACEAE: Cheirostylis sp.: Sharing an illustration of Cheirostylis sp. I dont want to share the species name right now as its going to be a surprise.

I have reduced the size slightly. Hope you will like it.


It was so difficult to study the flower, as you can see the size of it.


Yes sir, very very minute. I wonder how did you dissected.


very nice drawing, knowing you, your own I guess…
painstaking details..
isn’t the dissecting scope and concomitant digital photography a nice tool? …
did you also take pictures of your dissection?


Really great work. It requires a lot of patience too.


If illustration then it should be Cheirostylis pusilla
