    Jim Comber lists 5 species of Mycaranthes [formerly Eria] for Java.

    Lip shape is an important character used to distinguish the different species. If you can supply a close-up photo, that will help to determine which species.

    Thank you Gary
    I mounted this plant on a mango tree. And the tree take the plant higher and out of my reach. So I can't take a proper picture using my phone camera.
    And now I don't have flowers left any more. So I suppose we have to wait till the plant bloom again to take a picture.
    The plants are about 30 cm high currently. And the leaves are about 20 cm long. It has fine purple root that gradually turn into black.
