    Default Dendrobium anosmum alba?

    I got this one during the recent Philippine Orchid Society show in bud and with
    2 capsules... anyways it was sold to me as Den. anosmum, I had my doubts
    but when the buds opened it does look like one except that its creamy white
    with an off yellowish center and lacking that signature raspberry fragrance.
    Anyways is this the alba form of Den. anosmum?

    I'm not sure but the lavender/violet anosmum I know has a more velvety texture and a wider, more rounded lip. And, as you say. scented.

    When I actually saw one of these in bloom at the show I immediately fell in love with it, but
    when the seller told me that it is sangumay (Den. anosmum) I immediately had my doubt,
    but i bought it anyways...

    First photo: Dendrobium velutinelabrum but for others it is considered the same as Dendrobium heterocarpum.

    Thanks for the ID Derek.... so this is not Den. anosmum after all... I cant find anything
    about Den. velutinelabrum and i think this is not Den. heterocarpum based from the photo
    I've seen from IOSPE.

    I just heard about the information from Jim Cootes.

    He tells that Dendrobium heterocarpum is only found outside of Philippines and then there are 2 species described from Dendrobium heterocarpum in the Philippines in which they classified into separate species: Dendrobium velutinelabrum and Dendrobium rhombeum.

    While others regard this as separate species but my opinion I treat this plant as Dendrobium heterocarpum which is variable across Malesia Eco-Biological Region.
