    I agree with everyone else regarding the Aerides. That particular clone sure does have very dark colors. Difficult to find that deep, dark coloration even though quinquivulnera is endemic and common here in the Philipppines.

    This is last years flowering, colors are different because of different digital camera and location but gives a better idea of the color.
