蘭之魅 - LÁN ZHĪ MÈI - THE BEAUTY OF ORCHIDS - PLANT - Chinese name – 海南钻喙兰 (hǎi nán zùan hùi lán) Ecology – Epiphytic on tree trunks in open forests; 1000m. Distribution – Hainan; Cambodia; Indonesia; Laos; Malaysia; Singapore; Thailand and Vietnam. Info – According to the China Species Red Lists, R.gigantea has been classified as endangered (EN) species. Deforestation in the tropical habitat in which R. gigantea lives and over-harvesting for sale have reduced its wild population. 钻喙兰属多年生草本植物,为典型的热带附生兰。多生于海拔 1000m以下的疏林中树干上,分布于缅甸、越南、老挝、柬埔寨、泰国、马来西亚及中国海南。 由于其生长环境中热带森林的过量采伐,环境严重恶化,加上人们为了追求眼前利益,过度采集出售,致使海南的野生海南钻喙兰数量锐减,严重影响了海南钻喙兰生态群的构成,几近濒危。在《中国物种红色名录》中被列入濒危物种(EN)。
