This discussion on Asco miniatum is getting very interesting. I remember that during our orchid shows there was always a lively discussion whenever miniatums were shown - especially if our own local miniatum (?) which seemed to be confined to a very small limestone area in Kaki Bukit in northern Peninsular Malaysia near to the Thai border, appears on the judging bench. Compared to what was then the standard miniatum from north Thailand, our local var of miniatum(?) had longer, slimmer leaves; smaller flowers with a more intense orangish colour. Christensen has now classified the Thai var as Asco garayii. Now I wonder where that leaves our local variety? Will post a pic of our local var if and when it flowers. Been trying to save it after neglecting it attached to an old tree stump. It has not bloomed the last 3 years. Unfortunately it does not occur in the original place any more.
I still maintain that the flower shown is not an ascocentrum but a hybrid of.
Adorable orchid nonetheless and very well photographed, Blueflower.
