Aphyllorchis sumatrana J.J.Smith 1922

Aphyllorchis sumatrana was described by Smith (1922) from Goenoeng Malintang, West Sumatra at an elevation of approx. 1.300 m. Smith (1922) noted that the epichile of the lip is simple, much recurved and rugose towards the apex, and that it has a rather long column that is hardly dilated at the apex. The description was based on dried and alcohol material. The finder H. A. B. Bünnemeijer noted that the peduncle, bracts and flowers are light green and have violet streaks. Today, this species has only been recorded from Sumatera (POWO 2021).
