James B. Comber completed an apprenticeship at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in 1955. Inspired by his National Service posting in Singapore, he became Manager with AIP at the Sapang rubber plantation in Sabah. Comber wrote three books, and numerous articles about the orchids of South-east Asia, describing over 1,000 species. Two of the species he recorded are named in his honour: Sarcoglyphis comber and Bulbophyllum comber.
