Hi everybody,

The three of them seem native to hilly sites on middle argentina. The other already identified on the zone are Sacoila lanceolata y Habenaria hexaptera.

1- This one has 1 or at most 2 palm-like leaves, a white translucid bulb, and the flowers don't open fully, except the one which was forced for the picture.

2-This one I kept a whole month waiting to open, but just got as close as this bloom, hope It will be enough for a clue. I've spent years to find one flowering but still nothing.

I think the last one may be a Cyclopogon.

Here is a link that might be useful: Cyclopogon elegans

The first is an unusual terrestrial orchid restricted to a particular area, called Eulophia ruwenzoriensis.

Could it be a Pelexia? -Here is Pelexia bonariensis.

I agree with susanc. Now the accepted name is Pachygenium bonariensis.

Wow thanks. It matches pretty well. Now I wonder how Pachygenium and Cyclopogon reached my land. Their supposed habitata are thousand of miles away from mine. Thanks.
