    I think Ulysses Ferreras and Wally Suarez which are Philippine taxonomist are describing the species.

    I believe you are correct. In fact, today I found a thread started by Wally himself in another CP forum, where he states that there are less than 30 flowering individuals of this species left in the wild, with the entire population being restricted to just a few square meters of habitat. He says it's one of the most endangered species in the world, but he plans to reintroduce his seed-grown plants back into the wild at another more protected location close to the original native site.
    His posts also include great images of the mature plants in their habitat. I'm not sure what the rules are on here about posting links to other forums, so I won't do it

    Just because they're in the process of describing it doesn't mean it has been officially described. I'd say posting the name at this point is bad mojo.
