I found this guy just outside of Bloemfontein at the beginning of January. Back then it was only just making new leaves (see the last photos, also the habitat shots) but I recognized it as an orchid and dug two out to pot at home so that I could find out what it is. I know the vegetation of the area very well and have never seen it before there. Bearing in mind that it is in a pot in Somerset West (and the flower photos for that matter), I have added the GPS coordinates as the original locality. This species is only known from Gauteng and some parts of KZN, and to my knowledge has never been recorded in the Free State. This is therefore a huge range extension for this beautiful little orchid!

Redlisted as Near Threatened: what a find.

EDIT: Locality note: locality given is the exact tree where it was found (southern side).
