Dendrobium parvulum, native to Sulawesi, Celebes and Papua New Guinea, where it grows from 900 to 1200 meters in elevation. The specific epithet translates to “very small” or “tiny” which, as you can tell from the photograph, is quite accurate! Photograph by Steve Beckendorf.

One of my favorites of the genus, Dendrobium dichaeoides. It is named for the growth habit resembling that of another orchid genus, Dichaea, which is native to the Neotropics. Unlike species in Dichaea, this plant is native to New Guinea. Photos by Eric Hunt, found at OrchidSpecies.com. One of my favorites of the genus, Dendrobium dichaeoides.

Here is Dendrobium aurantiflammeum, a native of Borneo; its specific epithet translates to “orange flame,” which I find to be an apt description. For clarification, that’s a measuring tape, showing that the plant is 71 cm( ~28 inches) tall. Photos were taken from Morabeza79’s Flickr.
