    Thanks a lot!

    As I have expected, it's the same with Dendrobium thysanophorum.

    I love the unusual leaves of this kind.

    The difference between is that the leaves of Dendrobium thysanophorum is oblongated and not pointed. The lip and petals are not wide as Dendrobium lunatum.

    See the difference and compare with your plant in this link: IOSPE PHOTOS

    hi derek,
    i dont know why it didnt come up while googeling...
    anyway, it could well be one and the same, as for the leaves they differ in shapes depending on the size of the plant. as for the bloom, i need to observe if the lip unfolds on a fresh bloom or not.
    jim and me identified this aporum lunatum according to an old drawing with a perfect match.
