    Talking Again dendrobium species no idea the ID.

    The pseudo bulb exactly like den. lamellatum, the flower is very small more than one cm with soft smell. Tom probably can solve this problem. Thanks.

    It's always fun when the little "friends" are in the picture. It gives an idea as to the size of the flower as well.

    The third shot shows off the bloom well. Hope someone recognizes it for you.

    Cheers,

    What makes you think it is not Den. lamellatum?

    It is Den. lambellatum IMO. Den. lambellatum is a variable species.

    It is pretty! I like the crystaline structure of the flower, looks like it is sprinkled with pixie dust.

    hi zain,
    a nice one!
    if you still not sure with the id, you can also check den ypsilon, or den platycaulon.

    Thanks everyone for your nice word.
    Tom I think this is not Den lamellatum because the flower so small and for lamellatum the flower is bigger than this and the pseudobulb is so short not even 5 inches.
    Ron you are right its den ypsilon. Thanks for helping me.

    That is interesting. To me, that Den. ypsilon looks identical to Den. lamellatum.
    I don't know anything about Den. ypsilon, but for sure, yours is not Den. platycaulon.
    According to IOSPE, that Den. ypsilon has 2cm flower and my Den. lamebellatum may have slightly bigger flower but not much. If I were you, I would do a bit further search to make sure it is correctly identified.
    Here is my Den. lamellatum(with purple pbulbs and some purple on its leaves as well, variable sp):

    I did a little search on Den. ypsilon--"Seidenfaden(ref. 454) indicates that vegetatively D. ypsilon could not be distinguished from D.lamellatum(Blume) Lindley.

    Flower size is about the same(2cm vs 2.2cm). much appreciated if anyone here can tell me/us the differences between these two species.
