Two New Orchid Species Discovered In Cuba

Encyclia navarroi was discovered in the western zone and has large flowers. Tetramicra riparia has very small flowers and was found on the banks of stony streams in mountains of Baracoa, which is one of the rainiest and least explored areas in the eastern zone of Cuba.
