    That's a beautiful miniature dendrobe. LKove the pastel colour and the contrasting lip.

    Very nice!! I do like it so much.
    Is there a story to the "Hook.f.1889" at all?

    When Yves wrote Dendrobium trantuanii Hook.f. 1889, he cited the specific epithet correctly.

    The Hook.f. portion refers to the author of the species: Joseph Dalton Hooker (1817 - 1911). The "f" is a shortened Latin term filius meaning the younger, because Joseph's father was the prominent botanist William Jackson Hooker (1785 - 1865).

    The 1889 is the year when the species epithet (name) was published.

    To have made the citation completely correct the abbreviation of the publication where Dendrobium trantuanii was published should have also been included.

    Now I do not know where Yves found his citation for this species but it is totally incorrect.

    A quick look at the International Plant Names Index revealed that Dendrobium trantuanii was named by Perner & X.N.Dang in the German orchid magazine Orchidee (Hamburg) 54 (2): 220 (2003). The number 54 refers to the volume number; the (2) refers to the issue number; 220 is the page number where the description was made; and obviously (2003) was the year of the publication.

    I hope this answers your question Moosecakes.

    All the best,
