Lecanorchis vietnamica

Anoectochilus annamenis

Saccolabiopsis viridiflora

Cryptocoryne vietnamensis - is a new species of Araceae family.

Three species of orchids are completely devoid of leaves. Not contain chlorophyll and live on the meter in the decomposition like mushrooms.

All these species are at risk due to illegal logging, hunting and conflicting development interests. However, Thua Thien Hue Province authorities - in particular the Forest Protection Department - have committed to conserve and manage these valuable forests.
