For the people doubting that we saw reinwardtiana, I still have the
pictures which are very characteristic. IMHO the plants at the summit
are too similar to tenta, even with fringes, peristome, hair on the lid
and all to be a separate species. And there is enoufg variation in the
hybrid over a range of 200m vertical, to the point that it becomes
difficult to assign the plants to one of the species. You see
characteristics of both parents (reinward and tenta) appearing and
disappearing. I really think Murud is underrated and should be
described better. John
