Recently, I got this plant labelled as Jumellea majalis, a species from Madagascar of which there is no picture around on the internet except for a photo of a herbarium specimen. Now that the flowers have opened it became clear that it is not majalis, so I started investigating and with the help of the data on Jumelleas (measurements of plant and flower parts) in Stewart's "Angraecoid Orchids" I came up with Jumellea longivaginans. This is also a species from Madagascar of which there is equally no photo available in the whole wide web. After searching for quite a while, I found a herbarium sheet of the type specimen of J. longivaginans, and the flowers are so distinct, there is not much doubt. The plant consists of several erect stems about 30-40cm long covered with leaves. The flowers sit on fairly long pedicels with three large bracts. The sepals and petals are 20-25mm long and look like any other Jumellea. The most distinctive feature is the spur, which is in total about 10cm long. On the first 30-40mm, the spur is curved, parallel to the ovary, greenish-white and has a flat to oval cross section. Lower down, the spur becomes round, bronze in colour and curly. This species has quickly become one of my most favoured Angraecoids!
