How many experts does it take to name an orchid?

About 24 it turns out. Zoe did her usual trick of finding an interesting orchid under her foot while we were all looking in trees.
The tiny Polystachya growing on a stick that must have recently fallen from the tree above turned out to be Polystachya spatella. Orchid identification with our friends from Kitabi has been great fun and really rewarding.

    Where was Jacob? Maybe you should have got him to run past it to replicate the moving vehicle of the other day!
