News from the Cootes Study Group

(Deutsch) In behalf of the Cootes Study Group, I am thrilled to share with you the publication of eight new species we discovered in the forests of Bukidnon. Two species have descriptive specific epithets while six bear the names of different honorees.
Bulbophyllum anascaputum is named for the resemblance of its labellum to the head of a duck (Anas sp.). On a personal note, it reminds me of a species of duck endemic to the Philippines (Anas luzonica) we are endeavoring to conserve.
