New Orchid in the Kogelberg

This morning the Cape Times carried a report of a new Orchid, Satyrium Liltvedianum, which was found by Dr Timotheus van der Niet in the Kogelberg in 2009.  It is named after Bill Liltved, the author of ‘The Cape Orchids’, and the photographs in the paper are by Herbert Straker.
