Dear all, For those who are interested, I've uploaded images from the November-December expedition to Palawan and Borneo. Highlights include a return visit to Thumb Peak, in the Iwahig Prison & Penal Colony, as well as Mount Victoria and an excursion to see Nepenthes bicalcarata in a lowland peat swamp. Once again, some new orchid taxa were identified, one a saprophyte and the other a remarkable epiphyte. Featured plants include (among others): Nepenthes deaniana Nepenthes philippinensis Nepenthes attenboroughii Nepenthes reinwardtiana Nepenthes fusca Nepenthes macrovulgaris Nepenthes gracilis Nepenthes mirabilis Nepenthes stenophylla Nepenthes burbidgeae Nepenthes rajah Nepenthes villosa (Tambuyukon form) Drosera ultramafica You can view the entire album on Facebook. Please let me know should you encounter any problems viewing the album, or if you have any questions about the trip or plants encountered. Happy Christmas! Alastair.
Dear all, For those who are interested, I've uploaded a small selection of my own photographs from the recent Redfern expedition to Palawan and Borneo to Facebook; you shouldn't need to be a FB friend or member to view the images. You can view the album here. Whilst fairly difficult owing to the number of peaks attempted in the time available, the expedition was a great success and members were able to view all the species they had hoped to see, along with a few bonuses that included Nepenthes we had not planned on encountering, some new orchid taxa and two species of Rafflesia. With respect, I will not add people I do not know as friends on Facebook, so please do not take it personally if I do not acknowledge a random request; I use the service for friends and family only. Please let me know should you encounter any problems viewing the album. Best wishes, Alastair.
