Strange Rhaphidophora


You'll recall that a while back there was a discussion about the odd 
Rhaphidophora that flowers behind the appressed leaves.

While at Fairchild for the IAS Annual, Craig Allen (who's the first 
person to have flowered it) and myself made fertile herbarium 
specimens of the Fairchild plant. It's an as yet undescribed 
species (to be called R. cryptantha - meaning 'hidden flower) that 
Craig and I are going to describe in a paper on the New Guinea and 
Pacific Rhaphidophora species to be published in the Garden's 
Bulletin Singapore early next year.
