Orchid : Sadokum stapeliiflorum (Teijsm. & Binn.) D.Tiu & Cootes 2007 From Rejang Land Sumatra

Before move to Sadokum genus this species known as Grammatophyllum stapeliiflorum (Teijsm. & Binn.) J.J.Sm.(1905). But in 2007 Danilo A. Tiu, a Filipino horticulturist and orchid specialist, and Jim Cootes, an Australian researcher, have recently identified a new genus of orchid, which they called this Sadokum.

Sadokum is derived from “sadok”, a Samar-Leyte vernacular for cap or hood. The name of the new orchid genus, as given by the two researchers, actually refers to the hood-like dorsal sepal of the flower that seems to protect the column of the bloom.

Sadokum can be found in the Philippines, Malaysia, Sumatra, Java, Sulawesi, and New Guinea. The genus contains one species, S. stapeliiflorum (Teijsm. & Binn.) D. Tiu & Cootes.
