Paphiopedilum maliopense var. jackii

麻栗坡兜兰

qiǎn bān dōu lán

兜兰属地生或半附生植物。产中国云南东南部、广西西部和贵州东南部。生于海拔1 100~ 1 600 m的石灰岩山坡林下或灌木丛下多石和排水良好的地方或岩壁积土处。越南北部也有分布。模式标本系温 室栽培植物,采自云南麻栗坡。 它虽然分布较广,但目前在野外已很难见到其踪迹了。这主要是由于近年来的过度采摘,而另一方面也由于它自身的生物学原因,它没有延长的地下根状茎且对生境要求也较严格。在《中国物种红色名录》中被列入极危物种(CR)。因此,它是当前最需要保护的濒危物种之一。



Ecology -Rocky and well-drained places in forests in limestone areas; 600-2000 m

Distribution - SE Yunnan ; N Vietnam
